Pearson Air Museum volunteer and Army Maj. Chip Sell walks into the facility on Wednesday. Sell, who was wounded while serving in Iraq, said that he felt a personal connection to the museum after receiving his Purple Heart in a ceremony there in 2003. "This is part of the Northwest's history, and I hope people come together to embrace it," he said.
