The mission of the VMM is to honor the men & women who have so bravely served and sacrificed for this nation in the armed forces. We strive to preserve the history of these veterans and their deeds and accomplishments, to provide a forum from which these accomplishments may be shared with the community, and to educate future generations about our heroes in uniform.
The Veterans Memorial Museum in Laurel, MS is a 6,000
