This is America’s story. This is your story.
The American Freedom Museum
The American Freedom Museum illuminates the American experience during crucial moments in our nation’s history. From the hills and valleys of the American Revolution to the sands of Iraq and Afghanistan, you will step into history and discover the journey of those in our nation’s military who have courageously and heroically sacrificed to ensure the many freedoms that we enjoy today. Our mission is to Honor American veteran’s and military personnel for the sacrifices they have made for our freedoms; Educate this and future generations about our rich heritage; and Inspire others to achieve greatness.
The M29 Weasel was a World War II tracked vehicle designed specifically for operation in rough terrain. Introduced in 1942 when the First Special Services Force needed transportation into Norway.
This particular helicopter was purchased by the Army in May 1966. It was piloted by members of the 48th Assault Helicopter Company, including Lt. Jim Sanford who currently resides in Savannah, Georgia.

What people are saying:
Thank you for the gift of such a meaningful experience.
“Today I took one of my daughters and her three sons to the Museum. Thank you for the gift of such a meaningful experience. My grandsons are 9, 11, and 13. We stayed nearly two hours and they were completely attentive. They all asked to return for a longer visit. The depth of the message and the consistent Christian thread reminded us of God’s hand in our country’s story. I love history and have visited many American museums. This is Smithsonian quality with a sense of respect and awe that is unparalleled. It was emotional but not maudlin. It left permanent impressions on all of us. Thank you so very much for dedicating your time and resources to make this available to us. I will be telling all my friends about this “hidden treasure.”
Wonderful information that you wouldn't find in history books
“I had the privilege of escorting a group of our residents to your facility this week. I was completely blown away by the amount of priceless artifacts and wonderful information that you wouldn’t find in history books. Being able to experience this exhibit with our residents was a true honor and I thank you for putting together such an amazing collection. Some of our residents that visited yesterday included a Pearl Harbor survivor, a commanding officer during the Vietnam War and a Bataan Death March survivor. To see the looks on their faces and to be able to hear first-hand accounts of some of the battles displayed in your Museum will be somethuing I will cherish forever! I can’t wait to return with my family!! Thank you for all that you do, and I look forward to returning for years to come!”
