Overview

Since its birth during the Revolutionary War in 1775, the U.S. Army Quartermaster Corps has fed, clothed and equipped the U.S. Army. The Museum's 11 exhibit galleries tell the stories of how the Quartermasters have provided logistical support from Valley Forge and Little Big Horn to Iraq and Afghanistan. Some of the Museum's significant artifacts include the nation's first 50 star flag, General George Patton's World War II jeep, General Grant's Civil War saddle and General Eisenhower's World War II field quarters. Others include uniforms, flags, weapons, horse equipment; food preparation, mortuary affairs, water, petroleum and air delivery equipment. The Museum's 26,000 artifacts make it the fourth largest Army museum in the country.

I have never had much interest in militaria, but I was spellbound by some of the displays inside this museum. If the movie about training soldiers to pack parachutes does not get you hooked, then maybe the video of how dogs are trained to alert...More
