This past month a sad thing happened. The Veterans Memorial Museum in Branson Missouri closed. It was very sad because they had equipment from WWI to Our latest conflict on display. Every time I visited Branson I would go to this museum and spend hours looking at all it had to offer. Keep in mind that some of the items were donated by families. I think. Some may have been copies of real war materials? I don't know as I was not at the ensuing auction that took place. I was privileged to have purchased on line ( As I have seen all the items before many times) a US WWI grouping belonging to Benjamin Boyd of Andover MD. I purchased this because I wanted to preserve his military history and If a dealer would have purchased the grouping it would have been split up and lost forever. Well I don't have it in my war room yet as it is in safe keeping with my friends in Branson till they come up to visit their father at the end of the month. Everything you see in the photos is what I received. I will set it up just like in these photos .
