  • Warhawk Air Museum
    "The eyes on those marines were something to remember, because they had really been through it. And they were laughing and talking and smiling, but their eyes didn't smile. They were just fierce." These are the words Ceil Dennis—a lieutenant colonel in the Army Air Corps during World War II—used to describe his encounter with off-duty marines when he first landed on Iwo Jima. They wanted to sit in Dennis's P-51 airplane, a welcome sight for the troops spending three days on and three days off fighting for control of the Japanese stronghold. Their eyes told the story of men who, according to Dennis, "earned that island the hard way." The recorded interview is part of the Veterans History Project, a collaboration between the Warhawk Air Museum and the Library of Congress, that is designed to preserve the voices of the past for future generations. It's just one of several ways that the museum honors the lives and sacrifices of military personnel. Museum President John Paul and his wife, Sue, cofounded the 40,000-square-foot nonprofit museum at the Nampa Municipal Airport to house the ever-growing collection of planes and war memorabilia, including wartime sweetheart pillows, ration books, and some of Rosie the Riveter's actual elbow grease. Paul's passion for historical aircraft and wartime artifacts began in 1950, when he was 8 years old. He ran from his classroom to see the source of a deafening roar over the school, discovering the blue underbellies of two WWII F4U Navy Corsair fighter planes and the hobby that would become his vocation. Over the years, Paul's love for vintage fighter planes has led him on scavenger hunts and rescue missions, salvaging historic aircraft that would otherwise have been abandoned as scrap metal. They run the nonprofit organization along with their son, John-Curtiss Paul, who was named after the Curtiss P-40 WWII Warhawk. The family aims to educate visitors about the technology, cultural, and social changes that North America has seen since World War I. Guests can schedule a tour of the museum, visit the gift shop, or even request a sponsorship ride in a restored P-40 aircraft.
