WWII Museum: A Story of Service and Sacrifice

While walking through the US Freedom Pavilion I passed this exhibit, and the title seemed like a good sub-title for the WWII Museum--"National World War II Museum: A Story of Service and Sacrifice." This experience honors American patriots who dedicated their lives to our country in times of war and peace, such as Dwight D. Eisenhower, John F. Kennedy, George H. W. Bush and others.

The eight elders who went with us to the Museum--Elder Baker, Elder Smiley, Elder Madsen, Elder Ryan, Elder Backman, Elder Jean Louis, Elder L, Elder Casillas and Elder Bennett. Most of them loved the experience and were so grateful to be able to go. Elder Ryan (the Army elder with the patriotic tie) thanked us over and over for the opportunity. That kind of appreciation makes it all worthwhile.
