I would like to personally thank you and your staff for arranging a tour of the Peterson Air and Space Museum for the senior leadership of the Marine Corps Judge Advocate community. We were impressed with both your facilities and the tours that we received. Thank you again for your efforts. They truly enhanced our conference.Brig Gen James Walker
Our family is very into the annual roadtrips. This time we’ve dedicated a whole summer to driving all the way from New York to the West Coast, visiting numerous different museums along the way, including this one.”Lt Gen Frank Klotz (ret)
