Mountaineer Military Museum

The Mountaineer Military Museum's collection is extensive for such a small space, and honors military service from the Spanish American War, WW I, WW II, Korea, Vietnam, Desert Storm/Shield, Iraq, Afghanistan...and everything in between...even, some WWII home front memorabilia.

The premise of the museum is the "PROMISE" to the owner's fallen childhood friends during the Vietnam War. He made a graveside vow (as a pallbearer at his best friend's funeral, "I will never let anyone forget you"). The museum's Hall Of Heroes is most moving and reverent, as they have pictures of those who served from all over West Virginia. They rely on family members to provide pictures, and once one visits, they realize the reverence and respect that the owner give these families' military heroes.
