This was a very large museum and I want to share so many photos. So I have broken the photos into sub-directories. So you will notice a few postings for this event. Hope you enjoy them as we both did.
We were there for about 4 hours and still we were not finished. It was a fantastic museum. I found it very interesting as my Dad served in this war during WW2. If you plan on visiting plan an entire day just for the museum.
Although the Second World War saw a great alliance of 26 nations stand against the Axis Powers, the war against Japan in the Pacific became primarily an American War. It was an event that proved America’s mettle, but changed it forever; and there was once a long list of names from the Pacific and East Asia that were indelibly etched in the consciousness of all Americans: Pearl Harbor, Bataan, Corregidor, Midway, Guadalcanal, Leyte Gulf, the Burma Road, Iwo Jima, Okinawa, Hiroshima, Arizona, Yorktown, Indianapolis, Arisan Maru, Enola Gay...to name a few.
