The new National Veterans Memorial and Museum in Columbus, Ohio opened recently. The goal of the museum, located in downtown Columbus and designated by Congress as a 'national site,' is to tell veterans’ individual stories, as well as focus on their shared experiences throughout history. The project was the idea of astronaut John Glenn, a World War II veteran and former U.S. Senator from Ohio. For more information, visit the National Veterans Memorial and Museum website.
