Spotlight On:

Pacific War Souvenirs

August 8, 2024 7:00PM

Free Virtual Event – Join us on Facebook or YouTube

Please note: You can use the links above to watch archived Spotlight On programs!

Throughout history soldiers have captured items from the enemy to take back home as souvenirs. Weapons, flags, uniforms, or other equipment become objects considered “trophies of war”. Join us to learn about artifacts from our collection that were acquired by American Soldiers in the Pacific Theater during World War II.
