  • Awesome museum. You have to get a visitors pass at gate 4 to get in but it is worth it. Nice static displays out side of helicopters and planes along with some guns and vehicles. Check it out.
  • Always great place to stop. Lots to learn. We always walk over the memorial area and pay respects to those lost during a tour. Especially my husband's 2010-2011 in Afghanistan.
