Plans for a National Medal of Honor Museum-- Part 1

From the 17 February 2014, Marine Corps Times "Plans for National Medal of Honor Museum" by AP. //// Organizers of a $100 million National Medal of Honor Museum in Charleston, SC, are asking the state to provide $11 million for it. It is being supported by South Carolina's only Medal of Honor recipient (Vietnam War), retired Marine Maj. Gen. James Livingston. //// It will be at Charleston's Patriots Point Naval and Maritime Museum in Mount Pleasant. Plans were announced in 2012. Livingston said Charleston Harbor is a fitting place for the museum as it was where the Civil War started and that is the war where the medal came to be. //// Attractions planned for the museum include a uniform collection, large format theater and an interactive media gallery. And, there are already attractions at Patriots Point. //// --RoadDog
