New Exhibit at Behringer-Crawford Museum

by |

Sandwiched between WWII and the Vietnam Warm, the Korean War is often referred to as “The Forgotten War.”  But the Behringer-Crawford Museum is putting a local touch on the war’s history with its upcoming exhibit, Korea: The Forgotten War.  

Featuring photos, recorded interviews, and documents from local veterans, the exhibit will share personal war stories from a little-known period in American history.  Also included in the exhibit is a miniature statue of Thomas Dehne, a Marine from Newport who was a model for one of the 19 full-size statues in the Korean War Veterans Memorial on the National Mall in Washington, D.C.

The exhibit will remain on display through October 1.  A public reception will be held from 1 – 3 p.m. on Aug. 5, during which time all veterans and their spouses will be admitted free, while veterans’ families will be half-price.
