Wartime mail exhibit opens in Spokane Valley
SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. — The Spokane Valley Heritage Museum is showcasing a special Smithsonian Exhibit.
The exhibit, called Mail Call, displays stories and real pieces of war-time mail from as far back as the Revolutionary War.
The traveling version of the exhibition explores the history of America’s military postal system, and examines how, even in today’s era of instant communication, troops overseas continue to treasure mail delivered from home.
The exhibit debuted Wednesday and runs through July 15.
You can visit the museum on East Sprague Wednesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
