Museum Exhibits

GALLERY XI - FORT WOLTERS

The Fort Wolters exhibit will be formatted differently from the rest of the museum. More traditional exhibits, - panels, artifact cases, etc. - will tell the story of the military base where almost all helicopter pilots in Vietnam received their initial training. An actual training helicopter will be the centerpiece of this gallery, allowing visitors to get up close and personal with the technology students had to master.

Artifacts will include uniforms, patches, medals, documents, maps, briefing room mockups, and possibly simulators used at this location during its many years of service. In addition to its time as the US Army Primary Helicopter Center, Fort Wolters' role as a National Guard base, World War II Infantry training center, and Air Force base will be presented, giving the visitor a complete view of its changing roles over the years.
