COLUMBIA FALLS, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- The town of Columbia Falls is now home to a new museum that honors the memory and sacrifices of military members and their families across the country.
The museum is run by Wreaths Across America, a non-profit organization that puts on the annual wreath laying ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery.
The museum is packed with personal awards, photos, uniforms, and other donations from military members and their families.
Local veterans say the museum is not only designed to honor the military, but it's a great way to educate young people as well.
"Rememberance, honor, and most importantly to me is teaching, because these kids don't know what we went through in World War II to preserve our way of life," WWII veteran and Columbia Falls native John Driscoll said.
The museum is located in the same building as the Columbia Falls Town Office. It's open seven days a week from 9 A.M. to 4 P.M., and admission is free of charge.
