Happy Memorial Day! To celebrate, we recently made a trip over to Baltimore’s War Memorial; according to their website, “The War Memorial, located at 101 North Gay Street, Baltimore, MD, honors and serves all veterans of Maryland. The building serves as a place of remembrance for fallen soldiers and as an administrative office for veteran’s outreach organizations. The War Memorial Commission was created under both State and City law to operate the War Memorial building. The Commission has custody and supervision of the War Memorial Building and the War Memorial Plaza.”

Having lived in Baltimore for six year but not knowing what was actually in the museum, I took a walk over from the BOPA offices and found a museum with a great diorama of the Omaha Beach landing (made by school children), many vitrines and photos along with a great Bob Hieronimus mural in a back hallway. The museum is free, and open to the public 8am to 4pm Monday through Friday.
