Memorial Day at the Camp Gordon Johnston World War 2 Museum

While looking for places near Tallahassee that we could visit during the Memorial Day weekend, we discovered that there is a World War 2 museum in Carrabelle. Since Blaze is currently learning about World War 2, this was the perfect place for a road trip today.

It's not a very big museum, but it is very informative and does a good job of showing how important this part of Florida was to the war effort.
