Now more than ever we need to honor and support our veterans. The Chennault Aviation & Military Museum accomplishes this through first hand stories of the men and women who have served in the military and showcasing those stories with over 11,000 artifacts. The museum also strives to meet their needs. We have offered PTSD clinics, our General Chennault Chapter 51 of the DAV has helped local veterans to receive more than $2,000,000 in additional benefits and through a partnership with the Library of Congress our local veterans stories are told as part of their data base. Our museum is a reminder of Americans who accepted difficult challenges and found ways to overcome adversity, it is called the American Spirit and we must do everything we can to keep this spirit alive.
