dividing bar


The Laborde Services Gallery, located within the US Freedom Pavilion: The Boeing Center, has been made possible through gifts in honor of Alden, John, Lucien & C.E. Laborde. The space pays homage to the 16 million men and women who served in the US Armed Forces in World War II. The Services Gallery features three exhibits –Command Central, Voices of Courage, and the Medal of Honor—each highlighting the incredible citizen soldiers of the time.

Command Central is an interactive exhibit that discusses the roles of all branches of the US Armed Forces and how they worked together to secure victory in WWII. Visitors can use touchscreen technology to explore major battles and campaigns, and to view maps, archival images and associated weaponry.

The Voices of Courage exhibit showcases personal accounts of WWII from the Museum’s expansive collection of oral histories.

The Medal of Honor wall displays 464 Medal of Honor recipients, the nation’s highest honor, and gives visitors the opportunity to learn about their actions and search for recipients by state, service branch, or theater of operation.

The Laborde Services Gallery honors the Laborde family and all families whose sacrifices and achievements made this country the richest and freest nation in the world. We are thankful to all who have supported this gallery and for their commitment to the Road to Victory.
