Veterans’ Day was a very special event this year. Each of the down stairs rooms had a special display and the museum was open Sat. Sun. and Mon. from 1:00 – 5:00.  It was interesting to see the differences in the uniforms beginning with the Civil War to those of the modern day.  The winning ticket for the Ithica shot was drawn on Veterans’ Day.  Andrew Mathias from Westerville was the lucky winner!
