There is a surprising amount of memorabilia inside the center.

John:  What a great post.  Great pictures, and very well presented.  There are so many men and women that we need to honor... for their service and their many sacrifices. 

I hope you have a great, relaxing and safe Memorial Day Weekend.  Take care...

This is the time we are to try to think back and remember the ones who were selfless and died to make us free.

Hi John. Great post. I love driving by there once in a while when I'm in Merritt Island. There also is another reason why that place is so special to me. I got married there in 1994. Thanks again for sharing.

John, Great post!  Patton was right, we should all be thankful that all of these great soldiers lived, even those who are fortunate enough to come home!  Thank you for the great photos and reminders of what the purpose of this weekend is!

Neat photos John!  And very fitting for this Memorial Day weekend!  Somehow though, I pictured you at the beach - perhaps tomorrow:-)

Paul - That's pretty special! I've always drivin by but never went in. This time, I'm glad I did.

Tony & Darcy - We should always remember the fallen.

Hi Myrl - These photos were taken about 10 days ago. I'm always at the beach! :-)
