aerial_entrance_02-copy(The State Newspaper) – A museum being built in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, to showcase the nation’s highest military honor should officially be designated the National Medal of Honor Museum, South Carolina Republicans in Congress say. Rep. Joe Wilson, R-S.C., introduced a bill to formally make the museum in Patriots Point, on the eastern shore of Charleston Harbor, the national destination for Americans wanting to learn more about Medal of Honor recipients.

According to plans, the 107,000-square-foot museum will include a 240-seat auditorium, a 140-seat chapel and event spaces. The National Medal of Honor Foundation is still raising funds for the $98 million building, which could be completed in 2018.
