Museum of the Forgotten Warriors

museum of forgotten  4 11 18This may be one of the most powerful displays in the museum. Each dog tag represents a military person who was killed in Iraq or Afghanistan. One visitor after observing the display noted the reflections on the ground ( the white spots are reflections from tags ) represented the souls of the lost military heroes I believe he was right.Will not close!

With the recent death of Dann Spear, founder of the "Museum of the Forgotten Warriors". many in the community are concerned that the "Museum of the Forgotten Warriors" will close. Nothing could be farther from the truth. With the help of Don Schrader, the Board members and volunteers Roberta Spear is committed to continuing in Dann's Legacy.

Roberta Spear commented, "Dann passed in February, it was a huge loss to our family and the community. He left big shoes to fill. Dann served this community, veterans and their families since we moved from SoCal in 1978. The Museum was his passion and he loved hearing and preserving everyone's stories. As Dann always said, " the Museum is not about war, it is about people".

We, at the Museum are committed to continuing in Dann's footsteps, and will continue to carry on as he would expect. So come visit us at the Museum. Our website is: museumoftheforgottenwarriors.org . We would love for everyone in our area to visit. It is a special place.

We are always open on Saturdays, from June to October 9 am to 1 pm, October to June 10 am to 3 pm. Always on Memorial Day and Veteran's Day and by special appointment. Call us at 530-742-3090 or 530-682-0674 and we will do our best to accommodate your needs.

On a personal note, I would like to thank all the local veterans who have jumped in to help me during this difficult time. You are a blessing!"
