Astoria High School visit

The War Museum hosted the senior Astoria High School history classes on January 12. This is the third consecutive year that Doug Banwart, history teacher, has brought his students to visit us. Brought? Yes, he drives the bus too! It is always a pleasure to have our veterans speak with these enthusiastic history students. Astoria High School holds the record of the furthest distance travelled to our museum - over 140 miles! Following the museum visit, another tradition was accomplished - the enjoyment of pizza by all at Mario's - the best in Pontiac, if not all of Illinois. Thanks to Doug, his wife, and his students. We look forward to your fourth visit next year!
