La National Guard museum exhibit about US war in Middle East
NEW ORLEANS - The U.S. war in the Middle East is the subject of a new exhibit at the Louisiana National Guard museum in New Orleans.
It's called "Global War on Terror: The Louisiana National Guard and the 21st Century Warfight." The museum's director, Maj. Heather Englehart, says it includes touch-screen maps, a mini-theater and interactive oral history booths with videos of guard members talking about what they've seen and done in the Middle East over the past 15 years.
The exhibit opened Friday at the Ansel M. Stroud, Jr. Military History and Weapons Museum at Jackson Barracks in New Orleans.
In addition, the museum is still showing 12 portraits of veterans painted by internationally recognized Brooklyn-based artist Nina Talbot.
