“Those guys gave their all," Bailey said. "Those are the ones a long with these that we want to recognize. So it is quite a bit to see. Uniforms, we have guitars. I was a tunnel rack. I went down into a bunker. So a lot of these weapons were brought back in that manor.”

The museum will be open and free to the public after its grand opening on August 31.

The Tifton community is encouraged to come see the history of those who gave their lives for this country.
