We finally got to visit the Marine Museum in Quantico, VA. It was very impressive; detailed the Marine's part in all of our country's wars since their inception. It was a vast exhibit and we spent quite a few hours there. One of the docents had done 2 tours of duty in Vietnam and told us some about his experiences.

The rotundra was ringed with Marine comments and life-size exhibits as well as information about the wars past and present.

Even cartoon characters were enlisted in the Second World War effort. Hollywood stars of the day attended lots of War Bond ralllies and raised quite a bit of money.

One of the original "War Horses". It's astounding that any animal could be taught to do those things.

Ah, yes, we all felt so safe under those desks.......that was when the children in my elementary school all wore dog tags,with our names and our father's names on them.
