WHO WE ARE
Our mission is to create and support a permanent home for the Armor and Cavalry traditions, archives and historical antiquities that will both train future Armor and Cavalry soldiers and leaders, as well as educate the public in the Armor and Cavalry tradition. We seek to inspire all Americans to fully appreciate the sacrifices that generations of mounted warriors have made to safeguard the freedoms of the United States.
The NACHF is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
WHAT TO EXPECT
A portion of the US Army Armor and Cavalry collection can be seen at Pattons' Park which displays nine armored vehicles representing WWII-Desert Storm. The vehicles on display are the M4 Sherman, M26 Pershing, M48, M60A3, M1 Abrams, M3 Bradley, M113 ACAV, M114 and the M551 Sheridan. This is an open air walking trail located just outside the Fort Benning, GA entry gate on Benning Blvd. The main collection is in the Training Support Facility and is not open to the public at this time. We are working with The US Army Armor and Cavalry Collection as it occupies their newly constructed Training Support Facility (TSF). This new facility presents new opportunities for a partnership that is mutually beneficial to NACHF's mission and the US Army's Armor and Cavalry Collection. Your support will not only allow us to continue our work at Pattons' Park and Memorial walk, but will also provide much needed assistance to the TSF.
Key functions of the NACHF's role include:
Funding to assist with exhibits in and around the TSF that would support training and telling the story that exists in the US Army Armor and Cavalry Collection.
Funding in support of Macro and Micro artifact restoration or preservation projects.
Management and education of volunteers to assist in future training, community outreach events, periodic public access openings, organizational (schools, veteran groups, reunion, etc.) tours, and other events that may be conducted at the TSF.
As we continue to work with the US Army, The Center for Military History, and the US Army Armor and Cavalry Collection, we will be able to release more information as it becomes available. We are excited to grow this partnership as we move forward with our mission to preserve our heritage and honor our mounted warriors!

ARMOR AND CAVALRY MONUMENT
You can make a difference!
We are looking for donors to help fund our new monument dedicated to the service and sacrifice of our mounted warriors. Featuring the iconic tri-color Armor patch and hundreds of commemorative pavers, the Armor and Cavalry Monument will become the centerpiece of Pattons' Park and Memorial Walk and serve to represent and honor our Armor and Cavalry forces.
