Korean War Exhibit

The Korean War exhibit includes a display of vintage artifacts and a diorama depicting the attempted rescue of ENS Jesse L. Brown, the first African American to complete flight training and become a Naval Aviator, by squadronmate LTJG Thomas Hudner Jr. on December 4, 1950. The action, for which Hudner received the Medal of Honor, was the subject of a book and motion picture titled Devotion. The replica F4U-4 that is the centerpiece of the diorama depicting the snowy North Korean landscape around the Chosin Reservoir was a prop used in the filming of the movie. Read More
