    The volunteer that I experienced was very knowledgeable and kind. The Museum had all sorts of weapons and support equipment for the 45th. This place also includes a lot of enemy captured items. It is one of the best experiences you can get as far as price vs. knowledge gained. I loved it 100%

    As a 30-year veteran of both Army and Air Force I have visited many museums dedicated to the different services. This one, by far, is the best one I have seen. The displays are well set up and maintained and the volunteers that work there are eager to help and share the stories of the museum artifacts as well as their own experiences. This museum actually made me realize how long I had been serving when I saw a display in the back room made of the equipment I used regularly during my tour of the Army.

This museum actually made me realize how long I had been serving when I saw a display in the back room made of the equipment I used regularly during my tour of the Army.

There are a lot of outside displays with very nice walkways put in to make it easy to browse these historic vehicles, weapons and aircraft. The signs at each display let the visitors know just what these are and when they were used.

Be sure to spend some time checking out the 200+ original works of Bill Mauldin, the creator of the old "Willie and Joe" cartoons from the Stars and Stripes papers distributed to the troops and made famous by being shown in other publications. There is a whole room dedicated to his works as well as others scattered throughout the museum. There are a lot of humerous (and some not so humerous)aspects of military life illustrated here.
