This casually posed Vietnam era soldier is part of the expanded displays at the Camp Gordon Johnston Museum in Carrabelle. The museum has also added a World War II tail gunner in full gear. Three World War II era exhibits, depicting the camp post office, infirmary and a typical civilian living room, are now complete and, as a finishing touch, recordings of vintage radio programs play in the background in the exhibition hall.
If you havenít visited the camp lately, now is a great time. Also on display at the museum are a set of three alternative plans for the proposed museum and monument to be built across US 98 from Carrabelle Beach Park. The plans were donated by Inovia, engineering consultants for the city of Carrabelle.
The Camp Gordon Johnston Museum is open Monday through Thursday 1 to 4 p.m.; Friday from noon to f p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
