Veterans History Museum

Curator – Emmett Casciato

Military history has been a favorite topic in my life for as long as I can remember! My father served admirably in the Navy during World War II on a LCI (Landing Craft Infantry). His ship, US 675, was part of the invasion at southern France: August 15, 1944 (Operation Dragoon.) My daughter graduated in 2006 from the United States Military Academy (West Point.) She proudly served in Afghanistan with the 101st Airborne. I began collecting military artifacts and memorabilia about twelve years ago. I found it so gratifying to add to my collection, and dreamed of one day sharing my treasures, creating a museum for so many to enjoy and appreciate! Dreams can and do come true if one pursues noble goals! Our Veterans deserve so much respect for their bravery and patriotism! I plan to merge my love of country and my years of teaching experience to deliver a series of military lectures on various topics both at the museum and at schools in western North Carolina which show interest in our country’s great military history.
