Plans For a National Medal of Honor Museum-- Part 2

There are only 76 surviving members (now 75 with last week's death of WWII recipient Sgt. Walter Ehlers) and only six (now 5) are from World War II. Major General James Livingston says: "Our intent is to open this museum before we lose those final six members of the Greatest Generation. That is the reason we are pushing so hard." //// Livingston is asking South Carolina to provide $1 million initially, then $2 million a year for the next five. Obviously, South Carolina, like all states, is having big budgetary problems. But, it is hoped these funds can be added to those raised by the nonprofit National Medal of Honor Museum Foundation. //// Here's Hoping It Goes Through. --RoadDog
