In March 2003, the Museum of Military History started life in a tent at the VietnamVeterans Traveling Memorial Wall in St. Cloud, Florida. Vietnam Veteran, Mr. JerryKervin and his brother Jim, along with another Vietnam Vet, Dave Roberts, had anidea that they should ask the manager of the Osceola Square Mall in Kissimmee,Florida if they could use a store front in the mall to permanently display items thathad been donated and loaned by members of Vietnam Veterans Association (VVA),Osceola County Chapter 755. The three charter members called their display, the"Veterans Tribute" at the time.
In April 2003, the "Veterans Tribute" opened in the mall, The "Veterans Tribute" was initiated by the two Kervin brothers and staffed by volunteers from VVA Chapter 755. The "Veterans Tribute" began with donated uniforms, manuals, unit patches, keepsakes and memorabilia and was open 12 noon to 6 pm Thursday thru Sunday each week.
The museum of Military History opened its doors to the public at its new site on Saturday, March 31, 2012, following a ceremony to dedicate the museum to veterans, those heroes lost in battle and to Osceola County. museumofmilitaryhistory
