CALHOUN COUNTY, AL (WBRC)- Bob Ingram doesn't want anyone to forget Pearl Harbor, or his brother who died in the attack.
Ingram built a park and museum in honor of his brother, Seaman George Ingram, who was killed in Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. At the time, Bob Ingram was two years old and has only hazy memories of his brother. But he knows what his mother taught him.
"My mama instilled in us the love George had for his country and for the county and the state," Ingram said.
Ingram built his museum in 2002 near the family's Eastaboga home in Calhoun County. There's also an adjacent park which includes a de-militarized Howitzer machine gun.
Ingram filled his museum with all of the memorabilia he could find that honored his brother or the Navy ship that was named after him. Crew members from the USS George Ingram even once held a reunion at the small museum.
