The WHRC’s Finest on display at the National World War II Museum
Some of the WHRC’s finest artifacts are set to display at the National Museum of WWII in New Orleans, Louisiana as part of their “Snap Shots of D-Day” exhibition. All of these pieces are one of a kind and impeccably researched by our staff at the WHRC. Each relates to the D-Day invasion in some way. Included are the helmets of General William M Hoge, who landed on the beaches on June 6, 1944 with 5th and 6th Engineer Brigades, and three different 101st Airborne Division helmets with special insignia designating their individual units. The crown jewel of the display is the Korean War era M-1 of then Major Richard “Dick” Winters, given to the center by Robert Hoffman. We are excited that the National WWII Museum is displaying our artifacts. You can see individual write ups on each of the artifacts on our website and the Snap Shots of D-Day exhibit page.
