Hall of Honor expands

(Continued)

No veteran is refused admittance to the Hall of Honor.

“You should see some of these kids out here. They really get excited,” Duckworth said.

“This is here as an honorable thing and a show of appreciation to the men and women in the service, no matter what dates they served,” added Committee member Don Davis.

The museum is staffed from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. every Wednesday and is shown by appointment as needed. The Hall of Honor is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

“We do encourage schools, clubs and such to come out. We've had 4-H, Young Marines and some civic organizations out here. We are open for anyone wanting to take a tour,” Duckworth said.
