Willette in the News. Thank you Karen Zautyk of the Kearney Observer for helping us remember this hero!
Last weekend the American Legacy Museum was honored to help the California State Military Department put on a Vietnam War Display at the Fountain Valley Tet Festival. It was a huge hit, since many in the crowd were former ARVN who fled South Vietnam in 1975 when Saigon Fell. Orange county is home to little Saigon, one of the largest ex-pat enclaves of South Vietnamese. This year is the 50th Anniversary of the Tet Offensive. #southvietnam #arvn #tetoffensive @californiamilitaryhistory @militaryheritagecommand
Powerful memories from some former Minidoka incarcerees

Merry Christmas from the American Legacy Museum! It looks like Santa dropped a few fun things in our stocking this year, which we wish to share! Below are 3 photos that come from an album acquired earlier this year showing candid photos of John Wayne (and John Agar) on the set of Sands of Iwo Jima. This is just a sneak peak from this collection. So stick around as we will be posting more in the near future! #Johnwayne #merrychristmas #christmascameearly #sandsofiwojima #hollywoodhistory #silverscreen
Many greats lost this year as we take a moment to remember and cherish the memories we have, and want for the memories that could have been.
Today, marks the 76th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor. America lost 2,403 men on this day. A great many entombed within the hulls of their ships. In recent years we've seen history repeat itself, but we as Americans, we know that our forebearers of the Greatest Generation gave all they had to ensure that the American values of prosperity, education and security remain today in our hearts as we step forward into another year. Never forget why we are here.
For those 2,403 lost in Pearl Harbor, T.H. 7, December 1941
A milestone in the Pearl Harbor identification project.
All it takes is one person's effort to make discoveries and bring closure
ALM remembers the 2,996 men, women, husbands and wives, fathers, mothers, aunts and uncles and friends that America lost today 16 years ago.
We remember Jerry Lewis today...Rest in Peace
“I learned from my dad that when you walk in front of an audience, they are the kings and queens, and you’re but the jester."
TCM remembers Jerry Lewis, who made us laugh for eight decades.
Saving history comes in many ways. Simply sharing a story like this, may give a forgotten photo names and a family: http://www.wfaa.com/…/east-dallas-family-asks-for…/458061145
