( ST. JOSEPH, Mo ) People can now get a glimpse of what life for a soldier during World War I was like. The Remington Nature Center now has hundreds of century old war artifacts on display and open to the public.

The Nature Center unveiled three new window displays on Saturday in honor of Veterans Day. Each display showcases artifacts from four major war conflicts: World War I, World War II, the Korean War and the Vietnam War.

The 200 artifacts date as far back as 1918.

Remington Nature Center staff said they wanted to do something in honor of the past, present and future veterans.

"We wanted to do something special and honor of Veterans Day," Andrea McCoy, Remington Nature Center Manager, said. "We wanted to be able to honor those that served, and be able to display these very unique items for the public to enjoy."

On Saturday, the Nature Center offered free admission to veterans and one guest.

The artifacts will be on display through January.
