All Wars Room Exhibit
Dedicated to the honor of all our servicemen and women, the All Wars Room exhibit includes a large showcase along the left entrance of the room displaying uniforms and artifacts from Operation Desert Storm all the way back to the 1816 Mexican revolution.

A few notable items include a shirt given to P.O.W. Garvin Filton by the Y.M.C.A. for his trip home. Also included is a shirt beside Dr. Jackson's picture that was given to him by the British after his ship was blown out from under him. He survived, but lost his clothes in the blast.
Free-standing showcases include mementos and artifacts from WWI, WWII, and other wars.
Other exhibit items include:
  • War Records of Individual Boone County Soldiers (see index listing)
  • Pictures & Press Releases of WWII Servicemen
  • Boone County Selective Service Records
  • Personal Photo Albums & Scrapbooks
  • Additional items too numerous to mention
