Veteran Display I set up for the Bob Evan's Farm festival in Rio Grande, Ohio

Recommended Posts

Last weekend I had the honor of setting up my mobile museum display at the Bob Evans Farm Festival in Rio Grande, Ohio. I was invited by a friend of mine who is co-founder of the Eyes of Freedom traveling Memorial, which is a memorial to 23 members of Lima Co. 3/25 US Marines that were killed during a 6 month deployment to Iraq in 2005. I also had the honor and pleasure to set up next to another display on the War on Terror by fellow forum member RedlegGI. It was a great event and the public seemed very interested in our efforts to keep our fellow veterans remembered and to educate, which is important since they teach very little about it in schools these days. I was helped by my long time collecting friend bill who provided the original non-firing weapons for display with the combat mannequins.


Thank you for looking and for all those forum members that are veterans, Thank You for your service, and to the rest of you thank you for preserving the artifacts of our past so that future generations will not forget.
