The Veterans Museum at Balboa Park honors the men and women who served their country in the U.S. Armed Forces and Wartime Merchant Marine by documenting their contributions and experiences and preserving their legacy for future generations through their individual stories.

If you're interested in telling your story whether it happened 50 years ago or last year, contact us! We want to tell the individual stories of all veterans!
