I haven't been able to do many displays in recent years because of taking care of my mother and then my dad after her death so I was determined to set up something for Memorial Day. I ended up doing 3. One for a Big Band Dance that I do every year, one for a local church (chaplain display) and this one for my Home depot store, which I have set up for the past 4 years. I collect to preserve the memory of our veterans and when I can I share that history with others. I hope you enjoy it.

What a great display!!!

That is an excellent display! Thank you for doing your part to honor and preserve our shared history with the public. That is an incredible amount of work, and no small feat you have accomplished in order to bring it to a public space. The set-up probably took hours, but it was well worth it.
