Description

Our most important assets are our experienced volunteers who are more than willing to share historical facts, technical data, flight information and little known truths about the past. World WarII vets are dying off at the rate of 1,500 per week so it's important that we let them tell their stories. We are fortunate enough to have over 100 volunteers who are willing to share the past with our guests.By gearing our educational tours to enhance the criteria that educators must use as guide lines,(The California State Educational Standards), we are able to put the knowledge of our volunteers to good use.
Our future plans will include more "hands on" exhibits and we have a new building in the works. It will be our educational building that will house our library and multipurpose room.
We give our visitors an opportunity to see what has been done to keep Americans free and help them understand what part this country has had in preserving freedom for the rest of the world.We hope to give our guests the opportunity to be proud of America and their fellow man.
