You can feel the patriotism here.

We have invested a lot of money, and my husband works at this daily. We have tried to do this professionally.

We are aiming for an exhibit of accurate figures -- uniforms and settings. First, Jef designed exhibits to scale; now he wants to do life-sized exhibits. He takes mannequins that have virtually no expression and then makes rugged soldiers out of them. Every little detail on the uniform is accurate.

We want to keep it simple. People can sit outside, have some crepes or Belgian chocolate and listen to World War II era music.
