This exhibit series will be a journey to create four exhibits that speak from those that served and their experiences.  The traveling exhibits will be compiled of information from Korea, Vietnam, WWII, and The War on Terror.  The exhibits will include photographs, letters, journals and more from Veterans that were serving in the field.
