FREDERICKSBURG, Texas - The National Museum of the Pacific War has expanded its George H.W. Bush Gallery with new multimedia exhibits, testimonials, and artifacts from the conflict in Asia during World War II.
Exhibits include a look at the impact and destruction of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. Among the artifacts on display is an HA-19, one of five Japanese two-man submarines that took part in the attack.
The opening of the new space was timed to coincide with the 68th anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attacks on Dec. 7. The former president, who lives in Houston, is a World War II naval aviator who survived being shot down by the Japanese over the Pacific.
Fredericksburg is about 70 miles west of Austin, Texas. For information, go to www.nimitz-museum.org.
