Dr. Thomas is a Evansville native and part of the day seemed like a reunion as several Central classmates stop by to say hello to a good friend and shared many good memories.  We will share Colonel Thomas R. Burklow, MD thoughts and memories about his career in the military that he never really planned on.

If you like history in general the Evansville Wartime Museum is worth the visit, most of the museum is based on World War II and the contributions the City of Evansville made to the war effort that if you didn’t know about will amaze you. Many of us know about the production of the LST and P47 but you may not know that Evansville made most of the .45 cal ammunition used in World War II, rebuilt tanks, and many other facts.  In fact just about any business that was open in Evansville where involved in production of anything and everything used during the war.

We don’t want to tell you too much, you just need to go follow the link below for more information and museum hours.  The staff at the museum are not only know their stuff but they are some of the nicest people you’ll meet and most have military ties.
