                          Come On In!!


The Home Front pays tribute to the men and women of the 1940’s generation.  Much of the memorabilia is centered on World War II.  As you browse, be sure to see:

The Orsini Flag.  This wonderful flag was made by an Altamont man, Millard Orsini, while he was a prisoner of war.  It’s story has been on CNN and Fox National News.  We are proud to have the Orsini flag at the Home Front Cafe

  A magnificent gift we recently received is a signed print of the National World War II Memorial by it’s architect, Frederich St. Florian.  If you have been to the Memorial and would like to write a comment to Mr. St.Florian, please do so in our guest journal and we will pass them on to him

 Artist Edward Cowley’s stained glass art piece of the Home Front Café.

 Our Veteran’s Board where we encourage all veterans to post their photo.
