[Savannah for Scouts] Girl Scouts in World War II

Is your Girl Scout troop headed to Savannah? Sure, you’ll visit the Juliette Gordon Low Birthplace, and maybe First Headquarters or the Andrew Low House.

But there’s a bit of history you should check out as well.

I highly encourage a visit to the Mighty Eighth Air Force Museum in Pooler, Georgia (in the Savannah suburbs). Not only does the museum have an amazing interactive exhibit on the experiences of the Air Force in World War II, it also has a gem of an exhibit, “Doing their part: Girl Scouts in World War II,” which is on permanent display.

If you’re unable to make the trip to Savannah, please check out some of my photos from when we visited this spring:
