National Infantry Museum and Soldier Center

9 Sept 2018

A few miles down the road from the Civil War Naval Museum is the National Infantry Museum, just outside the gates of Fort Benning.

This museum is devoted to honoring all those who have fought for their country with emphasis on the U S Army Infantryman.  Opening in 2009, it is a well laid out and high-tech experience.  Admission is free, and you can wander at your leisure or take one of a number of guided tours.  There are also movies and numerous digital displays.

The Hall of Valor is a somber place, that lists the nearly 7000 servicemembers that have lost their lives since 9/11

There is also a large outside area with more exhibits and memorials.  You can visit a WWII army camp.  We did not have time to walk the outside exhibits, So we will have to go back someday.

For those interested in military history, this is a must see.
