[Look closely when you visit the museum and you will see the date stamped at the bottom of this poster: 1918. Other posters are dated also.]

[From front to back, this room holds displays from World War II to Vietnam, not including Korea.]

[Japanese carried little "battle flags" on them to bolster their bravery. This one was taken from the Solomon Islands in World War II.]

[Korean-era Air Force uniform blouse belonging to the source of this information. His name is on the official name tag. A uniform night jacket was longer than a uniform blouse.]

[A Lincoln woman married a fighter pilot who was killed in action at the beginning of World War II. Later she married another pilot, named John Harkins, who was a navigator of a B29. Harkins was in the same flight line as the Enola Gay that dropped the atomic bomb. Elizabeth Harkins donated several items for display.]

[Every inch of the museum is packed -- from floor to ceiling and including the ceiling -- with interesting things to look at. A large model airplane hangs upside down.]

[An authentic German corner includes many German artifacts. Nazi flags can no longer be found even for purchase if you visit Germany today.]

[This display is about women in the military, including World War II, Amelia Earhart and memorabilia from local women who served.]

[A display near the front contains mostly World War II memorabilia.]
