We had a great time at the National WWII Museum! The Museum is such a fascinating experience. I highly recommend it to everyone when you visit New Orleans.  I only wish that my parents were still alive to see this wonderful tribute to the men and women who served in WWII.

It was so nice to talk with the patrons milling about the store.   I enjoyed meeting the woman who donated her father’s helmet to the museum after his death a few years ago—it’s the helmet with the bullet hole.   There was another woman who talked about her 89 year old friend who was a WAC.  There was a gentleman visiting from Alaska.  There was a couple from Washington DC who were active at the Holocaust Museum.  There were lots of stories. Meeting the patrons, hearing their stories and sharing my mother’s story was the “icing on the cake” for our visit.
