Features of Katy VFW Museum
The Price of Freedom
The first thing you see when you enter the building is a corridor with rooms splitting off of it. The names of the deceased are written on a sizable board in the hallway. People pay tribute to their loved ones, or in the case of former President George H.W. In Bush’s, he recognized his shipmate who was killed in battle. Everyone should remember that freedom is never free.
