I remember watching this when it finally kicked off we watched CNN non-stop to see the war unfold right there on TV. Too bad we didn't just go in and finish the deal then, we could have saved quite a few lives. But is was the best kind of war, a short one. ... See MoreSee Less

This is a 1944 Christmas card from the 712th Tank Battalion that served with the 90th Infantry Division from Normandy to Germany. This one was sent home from somewhere around Dillingen, Germany. It is a reminder that even in the cold winter, facing war and death, men still had the spirit of Christmas with them and wanted to connect to their families no matter how far. God Bless all of our men and women who have served overseas in times of strife to secure and protect freedom for us all. ... See MoreSee Less

It is official, we are moving the museum to a new location that will be 5 times as large and still located in the same building where we are currently located down in the Fort Worth Stockyards. So after almost 10 years of trying to develop a decent sized military museum in Fort Worth it looks like we are almost there. So, let's see some support for the move y'all. We are going to be raising money to purchase the extra needed infrastructure to display everything. We have the artifacts and stories to fill it, but we will need more display cases and mannequins to flesh it out. We will also have a hands on weapons gallery (all de-militerized and non-functional weapons) for the public to handle and learn about. We hope that you will make a small donation to our efforts or come by and visit us at our current location. We hope to see you all soon. ... See MoreSee Less

Heads Up that we are open today!! Normally we are closed today but the Red Stegall Cowboy gathering is happening this weekend here in the Stockyards so we thought we would take advantage of all of the people that also like to support remembering our veterans. So if you are in the stockyards today and you feel it is important to remember the past, come in and see us. We have 100s of great stories that you will be glad for having learned. ...
