THE DOG TAG MEMORIAL

This may be one of the most powerful displays in the museum. Each dog tag represents a military person who was killed in Iraq or Afghanistan. One visitor after observing the display noted the reflections on the ground ( the white spots are reflections from tags ) represented the souls of the lost military heroes I believe he was right.
