The Sioux City Public Museum is commemorating the community's role in World War II with an exhibit.
"World War II, 70 Years Later" is now on display in downtown Sioux City.
Museum officials say thousands of Siouxlanders served in all branches of the armed forces and all branches are represented in the exhibit.
Officials say during that time Sioux City was also home to the Army Air Corps' largest bomber training bases.
"When you think about kind of community effort that went into World War II as far as the national effort too. But there was a lot of community pride. They raised war bonds and the airbase played a key role in the area nationally. There's just a lot of great stories to be found in this exhibit," said Steve Hansen, Museum Director.
The exhibit will be on display until March 31st and the Sioux City Public Museum is open normal hours. Tuesday through Saturday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sundays 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. They are closed on Mondays.
