This week, the county’s first veterans’ museum – Heroes Hall – formally opens the doors on its first exhibit, The Things They Carried, on Wednesday.
Voice of OC produced a series of video tributes for nearly a dozen Congressional Medal of Honor recipients, whose memorial plaques were recently moved from the county civic center, where they were in disrepair, to Heroes Hall.
Thanks to Jonathan Morgan Jenkins from Performance Production Services who kindly donated the veteran videos for Heroes Hall.
Look below the video for links to profiles of these extraordinary veterans. Also, read this article for the back-story of Heroes Hall, and this note from our publisher on the monument.
