From November 12, 2012 thru January 7, 2013, the Armed Forces History Museum’s Rotating Exhibit will feature “Home Front Tampa Bay”. This display is a collection of memorabilia reflecting life on the home front during World War II. The war not only drastically altered the lives of the men who enlisted, but it also greatly affected those who remained behind as the nation banded together in an effort to win the war.
The exhibit features a number of WWII items from the collection of Judy and Lester Dailey, which includes ration books and signs, uniforms and air raid warden equipment. Other items in this exhibit include a display of badges, letter openers and incentive trinkets received by the WWII defense plant workers when they met or exceeded their quota. Pillow shams, pennants, jewelry and other souvenirs soldiers from the Tampa Bay area sent home to their sweethearts and/or family will also be part of this exhibit.
Come out and see this impressive exhibit – “Home Front Tampa Bay”.
