Rocky Mount Living History Museum is recognizing Veterans Day and honoring veterans in the region with a temporary display of World War II memorabilia from the private collection of Scott Tester, a resident of Johnson City.
The display will remain open until the end of November; items are being exhibited in the lobby of the Rocky Mount Museum and may be viewed without charge.
In addition, Tester will present and talk about additional pieces of his collection on Veterans Day, Sunday, Nov. 11, at 3 p.m. This presentation is free and open to the public.
Tester’s appreciation for World War II veterans began early in his life when he listened to his father’s and uncles’ stories of their service in Europe.
