A Message From Our CEO.
Peter Marshall -actor and WWII veteran
“May we think of freedom not as the right to do as we please, but as the opportunity to do what is right.”
Hopefully, we are beginning to see some light from a very long, difficult year. I think we all agree that we have learned many lessons from our experiences, but one of the most important is that we should never take our freedom for granted.
We have all made sacrifices and learned new terms such as social distancing, mandatory face masks, super spreader events, etc. More than any time in recent history, we have all had the choice to either do what is right or do what we want.
Since the time our country was founded, the men and women who have served in our armed forces have given up their rights to do as they please. They practice a set of standards that many of us would find very difficult to live by; ask anyone who has ever been to boot camp. They serve because they realize that our freedoms are worth fighting for and it is the right thing to do. I hope that we will all take the time to appreciate the sacrifice of these heroes.
I want to thank all who have shown their support and allowed us to stay open. It is because of your generosity that we are beginning to welcome more visitors and members into the museum; so they too can be inspired by the stories of the men and women who took the opportunity to do what was right.
