    VISIT THE WRIGHT MUSEUM

     
    I recently visited the WRIGHT MUSEUM in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire to learn more about WWII. The museum opened 20 years ago and is a non-profit museum honoring the individuals involved with WWII and their families.

    The museum displays many artifacts from the war, many which have been donated by family and friends of loved ones. My family personally donated some of my own father's clothing, pictures and artifacts from the war when he was in the 139th Seabees Batillion in Okinawa. Visiting the museum brings you back in time to the 1940's and teaches visitors what it was like to live in America during WWII and teaches about the sacrifices many families endured waiting for their loved ones to return home safe.

    The next time you travel through New Hampshire, take a drive to Wolfeboro and visit this unique museum. We owe everything to our veterans.
