Stephen Coonts on his favorite military history destinations

“I have a half-dozen military aviation museums that I visit every time I am in town, but my favorites are the Udvar-Hazy Center of the National Air and Space Museum in Chantilly, VA, and the National Museum of WWII Aviation at the Colorado Springs, CO, airport.  And perhaps my very favorite, the National Naval Aviation Museum in Pensacola FL.  All three worth your time, all labors of love by the many people who have devoted millions of dollars and countless hours of volunteer labor to memorialize all those who flew and fought.”–Stephen Coonts
