Even with the rain, the new VA Medical Center still had a great turnout for its open house. Handed out lots of brochures and met some wonderful veterans including PFC Bradley Anders, 180th Infantry Regiment of the storied 45th Infantry Division "Thunderbirds". He fought in Sicily, landed at Salerno, Anzio, and Southern France all the way to Dachau Concentration Camp. The things this man has seen. http://on.fb.me/1EapuiA

Our friend, original member, supporter, board member of the Museum, Dave Conboy, is in the hospital in serious condition. Please remember Dave in your thoughts and prayers for a speedy recovery. Dave was one of my mentors in all that I have been involved in and a very dear friend. Please get well Dave.

Had the pleasure of meeting Maureen Miller, mother of Medal of Honor Recipient Staff. Sgt. Robert Miller. I knew a lot about his deeds on Jan. 25, 2008 but today I got to learn about the son. It is not often we get to meet a Gold Star Mother and appreciate what she has given our country.
Medal of Honor Citation:
For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty:
Staff Sergeant Robert J. Miller distinguished himself by extraordinary acts of heroism while serving as the Weapons Sergeant in Special Forces Operational Detachment Alpha 3312, Special Operations Task Force-33, Combined Joint Special Operations Task Force-Afghanistan during combat operations against an armed enemy in Konar Province, Afghanistan on January 25, 2008. While conducting a combat reconnaissance patrol through the Gowardesh Valley, Staff Sergeant Miller and his small element of U.S. and Afghan National Army soldiers engaged a force of 15 to 20 insurgents occupying prepared fighting positions. Staff Sergeant Miller initiated the assault by engaging the enemy positions with his vehicle’s turret-mounted Mark-19 40 millimeter automatic grenade launcher while simultaneously providing detailed descriptions of the enemy positions to his command, enabling effective, accurate close air support.
Following the engagement, Staff Sergeant Miller led a small squad forward to conduct a battle damage assessment. As the group neared the small, steep, narrow valley that the enemy had inhabited, a large, well-coordinated insurgent force initiated a near ambush, assaulting from elevated positions with ample cover. Exposed and with little available cover, the patrol was totally vulnerable to enemy rocket propelled grenades and automatic weapon fire. As point man, Staff Sergeant Miller was at the front of the patrol, cut off from supporting elements, and less than 20 meters from enemy forces. Nonetheless, with total disregard for his own safety, he called for his men to quickly move back to covered positions as he charged the enemy over exposed ground and under overwhelming enemy fire in order to provide protective fire for his team.
While maneuvering to engage the enemy, Staff Sergeant Miller was shot in his upper torso. Ignoring the wound, he continued to push the fight, moving to draw fire from over one hundred enemy fighters upon himself. He then again charged forward through an open area in order to allow his teammates to safely reach cover. After killing at least 10 insurgents, wounding dozens more, and repeatedly exposing himself to withering enemy fire while moving from position to position, Staff Sergeant Miller was mortally wounded by enemy fire. His extraordinary valor ultimately saved the lives of seven members of his own team and 15 Afghanistan National Army soldiers. Staff Sergeant Miller’s heroism and selflessness above and beyond the call of duty, and at the cost of his own life, are in keeping with the highest traditions of military service and reflect great credit upon himself and the United States Army.

Just a few miles east of I-4 at exit 64 you can experience the Museum of Military History which is not only educational but tour the displays from conflict to conflict all under one roof. The war vehicles give one the perception of a live experience. Everyone would have a great time just be open minded and ready to learn and experience this exciting place. The locals will be amazed that something like this is available and the visitors will be glad they can say they visited.

Very small collection. It's a low budget place with not much going for it.
