Our visit to Rock Island to re-unite with a Vietnam Army buddy gave us the opportunity to visit the Rock Island Arsenal. It offered a very complete and interesting history of the area and the arsenal. There are many pieces of military equipment on display but my husband's favorite was the walls of gun on display. Hundreds of them. After taking in what the museum had to offer we drove around the Island which is the home of an active mililtary base. The grounds of the base are beautiful and well maintained. The cemetery is visible as you drive by and you can get out and walk around. So glad we took the time to see this piece of our American history.
