The National WW2 Museum is a new addition to New Orleans since my last visit. An assortment of memorabilia, photos, audio & video clips & a movie narrated by Tom Hanks along with the greatest generation visitors made this a must-see location for us.

For the people still in the throes of The Great Depression, the work required to free the world of the Nazi menace & the Axis powers, was just another hurdle they had to overcome to protect, care for & feed their families.

After the unprovoked Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, volunteers filled the ranks of the U.S. military. The world changed as a result of their service & sacrifice.

This museum is new & with the expansion plans they have in miniature, there is still a lot of work to be done.
