The Military Museum of Fort Worth is dedicated to presenting military artifacts identified to soldiers as well as the stories that accompany them for the general public to enjoy. Due to exhibit space limitations and in order to present as many stories as possible, it is our policy to have two large exhibits per year presented at the museum itself while several smaller exhibits are displayed around the community throughout the year. The exhibits are always themed around a branch of service, specific unit, or particular conflict. As of November 25th, 2011 we have rotated the museum exhibits 6 times, having displayed more than 250 uniforms and 3000 artifacts identified to soldiers with Texas connections.
"Sea Dogs and Devil Dogs" / Stories of the US Navy and US Marines from the past 100 Years.
Beginning on "Black Friday" November 25th, 2011, the current exhibit will feature artifacts and stories from the US Navy and US Marines from the First World War to the actions of current serving Sailors and Marines. Follow the Marines as they fought under the control of the Texas based US 2nd Infantry Division in France during 1917 and 1918, as the Navy battled on the high seas of the Atlantic. Learn about the actions and heroics of both branches as they respond to the attack on Pearl Harbor and then fight from island to island throughout the Pacific to defeat the Japanese Empire. Enjoy the stories of both bravery and common duty as they fight to assist in keeping South Korea a free country. The exhibit then covers the the most controversial war of the 20th Century and the Sailors and Marines who fought in the Vietnam conflict. Finally see the adaptation of the Navy and Marines from their water based invasion history, to fighting and thriving in the deserts and mountains of Iraq and Afghanistan. These two branches of our military have proudly served our country for over 200 years and their efforts deserve to be recognized and preserved. The Military Museum of Fort Worth is proud to be bringing these stories to the Metroplex for all to enjoy. This exhibit is scheduled to close on Sunday May 13th, 2011.
