and the endearing support from the home
front are honored at the museum.The hallmark
of the museum is the world's largest war
memorial sculpture. Over five tons of
clay was used to sculpt this seventy foot
long, fifteen ton bronze sculpture which
consists of fifty life-size soldiers storming
a beach. Each figure is modeled after
an actual combat veteran from each of
the fifty states. The walls of the museum
are covered with the names of those killed
in action in WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Desert
Storm, and other recent conflicts of the
20th century. From the jungles of Vietnam
to the deserts of the Persian Gulf, from
the memories of decorated combat veterans
to the men and women who served on the
home front, every aspect of our nations'
valiant fight for freedom is honored.
