If you are interested in World War II history this is a must to see in Lubbock. I could have spent hours just reading the stories. I makes you realize the courage our fathers, grandfathers and in some cases great grand fathers generation had.

Aside from being an important part of our history, the Silent Wings were just pretty tough! Definitely take this place in!
