Former coast guard station eyed for museum

Glynn County worked on the homefront to help defeat the Axis powers during World War II.

A shipyard built Liberty Ships that hauled war supplies to embattled Great Britain, blimps stationed at Naval Air Station Glynco hovered above the coastline watching for signs of invasion and private citizens pulled together as they did all over the country to restore peace to the world.
