Student Narrative

This box highlights a personal connection to the Navy in World War II along with the heroes and hardships of the war. Items from my grandfather are shown to commemorate his service. Richard Halsey Best, a naval hero known for hitting two aircraft carriers in one day, is also displayed. Lastly, cigarette boxes show a harmful commonplace habit that kept soldiers going.
