Just wanted to encourage any history/military buffs who may be passing through Kansas/Missouri to stop by The National World War I Museum and Liberty Memorial in Kansas City, MO. Both honor those who fought and lost their lives during the Great War. There is an extensive collection of period artifacts, exhibits, photographs and news reels; it is the official WWI museum of the U.S. You can easily spend a whole day or two there. http://theworldwar.org/ And if you happen to be in central Kansas, Abilene is home to the Eisenhower Presidential Library, Museum and Boyhood Home. Again, another worthwhile stop. http://www.eisenhower.archives.gov/ And last but not least, the Harry S. Truman Presidential Library and Museum is located in Independence, MO, just over the stateline from Kansas City. http://www.trumanlibrary.org/ A lot of great things to see in the Midwest!
