Deming Luna Mimbres Museum (cont): The Main Room

This section of the museum is known as the Main Room/ Bessie May Room.  Evidently there were a lot of locals that were in Bataan during World War II and there was a special section devoted to them:
There were 1800 men from Coastal Artillery units from New Mexico units that were sent to the Phillipines in September 1941 to protect America's interest. We paid back their duty by leaving them for the Japanese to starve and torture.  

Please, click to read this touching account...it makes you truly appreciate what some people have done for our freedoms.




We loved the way the museum was set up so personal.

Nice china collection. Care for tea?
