Must Visit The National World War II Museum in NO

We just got back from five hours in the WWII museum in New Orleans. That wasn't enough time to walk through the entire place. It's an amazing, with tons of live history segments. Recordings from various people who fought in WWII whether it be on D-Day or in the Pacific.

What really struck me was the reminder of the fanaticism of the Japanese soldiers. Similar to al Qaeda. It's amazing to see what the US rallied behind and accomplished. I hope we never have to do this again.

There were many moving exhibits, but the quote below was particularly thought provoking.

Here are the rest of the photos I took.

Rob - I highly recommend the Evan Thomas book "Sea of Thunder" which provided (for me at least) an eye-opening look at both American and Japanese culture and how they impacted WWII Pacific Naval Battles.
