      Thanks for the support Zach! Give your teacher our web-site and tell her to visit our education section. It will give her all the information she needs regarding a field trip. Hope to see you all here soon!

    Clever and well done exhibits of US military engagements from World War I to present. It brought back memories of the WW II “souvenirs” my dad brought home and I played with as a kid. Bill, A Korean War vet and museum volunteer, shared a number of stories and pointed out some nuances I’d missed in one or two exhibits. This was my second visit, and I’ll return as more displays are planned. The museum is in a light industrial area off the main road, but inside is a wonderful experience.

    I have recently learned that there may be an exhibit in your museum in which my father, James C. “Curley” Thompson, may be featured. He was a Japanese POW in WWII and spent approximately 40 months in various POW camps. He was captured in the Phillipines, shipped to Japan on the hell ship, the Taga Maru, and spent his time in Niigata, Japan working in the coal mines.
    While he was a POW, he planned his “dream house” and later built that house in Ky. when he finally returned home from the war. Can you confirm whether or not he is a part of one of your exhibits?

      What a fascinating story. So wish we were your answer. Unfortunately the exhibit is not at AFHM. We wish you well in your search. We would like to extend our thanks for your father’s service.

    I am working with a friend that has a travel agency and we want to bring a group to the 70th DDay Celebration(s). DO you have a listing of or any special events that are being planned for the anniversary next year?

    If so we would like to get the information to include in our tour if possible.

    Kindest Regards,

    Roger

      Thank you for your inquiry Roger. I will pose this question to our staff and see what plans (if any) the museum has for this upcoming anniversary. I don’t know if you are aware, we have the uniform and personal items (including those worn that day) of Colonel Leonard T. Schroeder, the first man to step foot on Normandy Beaches.

      Thanks for visiting our website, I will email you as well.
