Cheyenne, WY (KGWN) - It's nearly 5,000 miles from Wyoming to Omaha Beach, but the effect World War II had on the Cowboy State was profound.

To commemorate the 70th anniversary of D-Day, the Wyoming State Museum is hosting a temporary WWII exhibit.

The exhibit examines how the war effort brought jobs and major economic and social changes to the state.

"Wyoming and its residents were incredibly used to a rural lifestyle," said Nathan Doerr, Curator of Education. "When the war hit it really changed their perspective and took them from the rural landscape into an international scene."

The exhibit is open through July 2.
