The European Theater
The first U.S. Army ground forces landed on the North African shore in November of 1942, steering U.S. forces on the path towards liberating Hitler's "Fortress Europe." Here you can find items from veterans who fought to bring down history's most evil regime and free the European continent.
The Pacific Theater
December 7th, 1941 marked the entrance of the United States into the Second World War and the start of a type of warfare it had never before seen. Located here are items from veterans of the Pacific Theater who fought from island to island in order to free the Pacific nations from Imperial Japan.
Beyond the Second World War, servicemen and women in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries have found themselves fighting in the trenches of WWI, the mountains of Korea, the jungles of Vietnam, and many more dangerous places in the service of their country. Here you can find items from veterans of these other, equally important, conflicts, and their place in history.
