War Remnants Museum

For Filipinos, a war museum like the War Remnants Museum of Vietnam is something that we don't have. This is because, the Philippines did not experience a Civil War.
 
This may be a bitter part of history, but within the confines of this edifice lies the lessons our civilization has to learn - that of making peace.
 
The War Remnants Museum showcases what was left of Vietnam War including the grotesque deformation of fetus brought about by exposure to dioxins and dioxin-like compounds, contained in the defoliant Agent Orange.
 
On the museum grounds are exhibits of helicopters, fighter jets, tanks, boat and missiles used by the American forces during the war.

I always fancy to fly a plane because becoming a pilot was my childhood dream.
