Officials at the National Navy UDT-SEAL Museum in Fort Pierce, Fla., are seeking a few items from the raid that killed Osama bin Laden on May 1, 2011.

Michael R. Howard, the museum's executive director, said May 2 he would like include uniforms, weapons and photos in an exhibit honoring the SEALS who took part the recent historic event.

The museum is in the midst of an expansion that should be completed this summer.

Howard, a former Navy SEAL, says the museum's phone has been "ringing off the hook" since news broke of the elite unit's involvement in the raid on bin Laden's compound in Pakistan. He says he was proud "that our guys were the ones to serve justice."
