Many of the other exhibit halls highlight different military eras and Texans’ part in them. The Cold War to the Global War on Terror exhibit, covers the story of Texas Military Forces from WWII to present time. Artifacts seen in this exhibit include a portion of the Berlin Wall, captured enemy weapons, and patches and helmets of Texans fighting over in Iraq & Afghanistan.
One of our favorite galleries was the 36th Infantry Division History. We were honored to see a hall honoring the members of the 36th Infantry Division who earned the Medal of Honor during WWII. It was a privilege explaining to my kids what this meant. We also learned about the Choctaw code-talkers who helped out in WWI.
Outside has even more to see with the Armor Row and Artillery Park. My sons and husband took their time walking through all the tanks, artillery and self-propelled guns. My husband has served and has driven tanks, so this was an awesome opportunity for him to talk about what he drove and what it was like.
