D-Day Remembrance set this weekend at Price of Freedom Museum

Staff report

CHINA GROVE — An annual D-Day Remembrance, which this year will include a Persian Gulf War exhibit, will be held at the Price of Freedom Museum this weekend.

Saturday hours will be 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.; Sunday, 2 to 6 p.m.

The museum, which honors all veterans of American wars, is at 2420 Weaver Road. D-Day Remembrance is a joint effort by the museum and the Piedmont Military Vehicle Preservation Association.

Military vehicles, weapons and war-related memorabilia will be on display, as will the Freightliner Ride of Pride truck.

Representatives of the Veterans Administration will be on hand to assist veterans with questions. There also will be military demonstrations and a military ceremony at 10 a.m. Saturday.

The museum itself will be open both days, and Saturday will be the first day visitors can see a new exhibit, which museum co-founder Bobby Mault calls the “three-room house.” It shows what a typical rural house would have looked like around World War II.

The Persian Gulf War exhibit will be on loan from the N.C. Museum of History. The exhibit is titled “The First Gulf War: The War to Free Kuwait,” and it consists of seven panels, each describing a different aspect of the war to liberate Kuwait in 1991, following an invasion by Iraq.

The Post’s Tuesday edition included a story on Michael Chapman, whose brother was killed in Kuwait. Chapman chaired a group that raised money for the exhibit, including a $100,000 donation from the Kuwaiti government.
