As United States Citizens we celebrate our independence and freedom. These liberties were and continue to be made possible by those serving in our military. This exhibit will highlight local men and women throughout history that have served in wartime, foreign and domestic, protecting the rights of fellow countrymen to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
Not only do we owe a debt of gratitude to those who put their life in harm’s way for our independence, but also to those who remained behind on the home front. Although they weren’t in battle they continued to serve, picking up where our soldiers had to leave off and devoting their time and energy to caring for those wounded soldiers.
We introduce this exhibit in honor of those who fought and those who bore the burden of war on the home front.
