    I heard that there was going to be a Navy Ship coming to Tampa, would you know where this ship is docked? I would love to see this new ship. My son is going to join the Navy and a couple of weeks and would love him to see this ship too.

    Thanks for your help.

    Regards, Kris have a great day.

      Hello Kris,

      We are sorry we did not respond to you sooner. We hope you were able to see the USS Independence this past weekend in St. Pete. Good luck to your son and tell him thank you for his future service.

    A few years ago my grandmother passed and before she did she donated my grandfather’s bomber jacket to a museum. I remember wearing it for Halloween as a little boy. As ignorant as that sounds I was only 11 and my dream at the time was to be a pilot. I didn’t realize how historic and priceless that article of clothing I was wearing was and continue to be. It has two red bombs on it for two missions he flew during d-day. Not to mention a good amount more. I’m ecstatic that my grandfathers jacket is in a war museum some where the only problem is grandma didn’t mention which museum she donated it to. Any suggestions on to how I could find it, or possibly by luck its located at your facility would be much appreciated. His name was William Norman Hinds.

    Sincerely,
    Mark Thomas Hinds

      Mark: I wanted you to know that we have in fact received the comment you posted on our web-site. The person who could best assist me with this information is not in the office today. As soon as she returns, I will see if she can shed any light on whether or not the jacket you are referring to was donated to AFMM. What a heart-felt story.
      I’ll be in touch next week. In the meantime, feel free to contact me if you have any other questions.

      Shortly after receiving this comment, we did send Mr. Hinds a private response, indicating we were not, unfortunately, the recipient of this bomber jacket. We were touched by this story. The AFHM would also like to take this opportunity to thank the Hind’s family for Mr. Willaim Norman Hind’s service to this great country of ours.

    Wonderful range of exhibits. Mr. Frank was very informative. Really enjoyed the designs – the trenches, Ho Chi Minh, Pearl Harbor, etc.

    • alon2392 says:

      Thanks Tom for taking the time to give us your feedback. People often comment about our detailed dioramas – especially the WWI trench. The other fascinating tip they don’t always realize is that all of our vehicles are operational. Thanks again – we are appreciative.

    This is a great virtual tour of the museum. And trust me, after visiting, I realized it only scratches the surface of the many wonderful exhibits housed in this impressive museum. It is so unique and so touching. Truly a labor of love. Thanks for all you do to honor our military and to keep their history alive!!!
