A future local military museum is asking the community's help with items.
The Juan Francisco Farias Military Museum organizers held a press conference to talk about the importance of the museum and what it means for the future generations.
Gabriel Lopez, the museum board president, says “It's very important that we have it so we can show our children. We can show our future generations the sacrifices that we made. When I do a presentation, I start off by saying we all know what we did, [but] the other people that didn't serve don't know what we did and that's why we need to show [them]."
Items being requested range from love letters, weapons, maps, photos, and medals.
