Mission Statement

To honor our Nation’s military history through preservation and education.


Studying history is essential to understand where we’ve come from and recognize the evolution of change to inspire us moving forward. Today we have superior equipment, more substantial military vehicles, and more accurate weapons that protect our soldiers overseas. But to understand how our military has evolved to what it is today, we must look back on the preserved stories of those before us. To do this, we offer educational tours to area schools that share America’s military history through our veteran’s stories. It’s one thing to learn about a war in a classroom or a textbook, but a whole other experience to see and touch the artifacts up close and in person. To keep our visitors educated on new topics, we periodically change out our displays. Each section of the museum focuses on a different story, war, and artifact from all five branches of the military: U.S. Marines Corps., U.S. Army, U.S. Airforce, U.S. Navy and U.S. Coast Guard. Experience the exhibits below when you visit the Military Veterans Museum!.

Brief History

What began as a window display in a hardware store on national holidays by five WW II veterans. The dream of preserving their stories has grown and is still growing with the initial assistance from the John E. Kuenzel Foundation and a land donation from Gabert and Rusch Realty. The Military Veterans Museum and Education Center is in its second phase of a three-phase expansion
