As we honor our veterans on Monday, a Valley museum will be paying its respects, and letting visitors see even more artifacts from those who have served.

Thanks to the support and donations from the community, the Veterans Memorial Museum of Terre Haute has recently expanded, and is hoping everyone will take some time out on Monday to honor those from the area who have served.

"With all of the things that we've gotten I felt like I needed to get them on display and so we doubled the size," said owner Brian Mundell.

The Terre Haute veterans museum is now home to hundreds of more war related items, all thanks to donations from the community.

"From people's closet, attics, basement, and they feel like I'll do it more justice then it will at their house," said Mundell.

Starting with WWI, winding through WWII, with quick stops in Korea and Vietnam, before reaching present day.
   
Veterans and their families are sharing pieces of their life, and service or everyone to see.

"It's been pretty overwhelming really, let me we had a lot of people come through the doors, and out of the blue things will show up, uniforms, maps, hats, and all kinds of things," said Mundell.

Giving visitors a glimpse inside what's like during combat, even showing a mock tent with living quarters and a medical unit.

"What the guys and girls had to go through, what they had to wear, what they had to eat, and just gives it a little extra that you can't get out of a book. You can actually come up and see the things in person," said Mundell.

Because that's the way we can gain perspective, on our past, and realize that freedom isn't free.

"To gain an appreciation for what Americans we are entitled to as Americans to be able to do you want to daily basis enjoy, everything is we enjoy every day are because of our veterans, the one that have served in the past and the ones who are serving now," said Mundell.

The veteran's museum is still taking donations of any all all war artifacts.
   
It'll be open on Monday after the Terre Haute Veterans Day Parade, that kicks off at 10 a.m.
   
Starting at fourth and Wabash Avenue and ending at the VFW on 12th and Mulberry.
