The Museum Mission Statement: To honor all veterans past and present, with emphasis on those from the Central Coast, who have served America. We do this by maintaining this museum containing military artifacts, historical memorabilia, and a research library for the education and enjoyment of the public.

“Our nation’s veterans made a solemn commitment to the United States. They have defended our freedoms; sometimes thousands of miles from home and from loved ones. We owe our veterans a debt of gratitude and our commitment to these brave men and women is that their courage and sacrifice will not be forgotten. The personal commitment from the individuals and their families is admirable and should not go unnoticed.” Wiliam M. Thomas, House of Representatives, Washington, D.C., 2003

The Museum is staffed entirely by volunteers.
