Backstory and Context
The collection exhibited at the museum includes helicopters, tanks, uniforms, cannons, letters, and memorabilia from various wars throughout America's military history, such as the Revolutionary War, Vietnam, Afghanistan, and Iraq. The goal of Spear in creating this museum was to keep the stories of veterans alive so that they may never truly be forgotten. Spear also features displays about the incredible women who have served our country and the challenges they overcame. Many living veterans who have been touched by this museum have come forward and donated their own personal wartime memorabilia to be added to the museum's collection.
