A very special item was presented to Mercury One during a visit to Iraq.
Although this item is not of our typical “historical” pieces, it now resides in our museum --- along with our American Flags from D-Day and letters from former Presidents. We truly believe that the work our donors are allowing us to do through the Nazarene Fund is history in the making.
Presented to us by General Tarik Hareny of the Peshmerga on the frontlines of war with ISIS in Iraq, this piece was made by the daughter of a Peshmerga soldier who was killed last summer during the Battle of Telskof. The same Battle that U.S. Navy SEAL Charles Keating was killed.
We are so humbled and honored to have been bestowed this piece, and hope this story touches you as much as it did us.
