Veterans Memorial Museum Foundation in Germantown, Ohio
I recently had the honor of visiting the Veterans Memorial Museum Foundation in Germantown, Ohio.
While the Air Force Museum gets all the attention, this is also one heck of a military museum. If you are anything like me, you probably didn't have any idea it was there.
The Veterans Museum Foundation is all about the stories behind our military history, specifically how Ohio Veterans fit into the larger story of our military.
The Veterans Memorial Museum Foundation is located on a residential side street in Germantown. Blink and you will miss it.
But don't be fooled....it's way bigger on the inside than it appears!
Once inside, you will be greeted by different rooms, dedicated to different time periods in our nation's history. You will learn the stories and see the memorabilia that was donated by the Veteran's family.
There are several thousand pieces of memorabilia on display in the museum. These photos don't nearly do it justice.
Even the TV station stopped by for a visit once.
