While every soldier’s training is the same, their story is their own. And there are many lessons to be learned from the story of The Soldier. Stories of sacrifice. Courage. Brotherhood. The doggedness of spirit.
The National Armor and Cavalry Heritage Foundation’s mission is to serve as a monument to all the many American mounted warriors around the world. Today, we strive to collect their stories, to preserve them so that they forever become not just a part of Army history, but a part of American history.
The National Armor and Cavalry Heritage Foundation has embarked on a process to plan, design, fund, and construct The National Armor and Cavalry Museum located on the high ground at Fort Benning, Georgia. The National Armor and Cavalry Heritage
Foundation is determined to establish this museum as a place of celebration and dedication that will convey the rich and distinguished heritage and tradition of the cavalry and armor branches.
The Army has made a significant commitment to the future of The National Armor and Cavalry Museum, including use of the land, staff for museum operations, and full use and maintenance of the most extensive and complete collection of tank and armored vehicles in North America.
From a cavalry charge on horseback across the fields of Gettysburg to the rapid deployment of tanks across the sands of Kuwait, the legacy of the mounted soldier is a story of mobility; of speed; of the historic power to shift the mighty tides of war.
The history of the Armor and Cavalry is long and illustrious, older than even our great Nation itself. Time-tested and battled-hardened, the branch has developed into the greatest combined-arms force in the American Military. This is a legacy that must not be forgotten, at any cost.
There is no place in the world that tells the complete story of the armor, cavalry, and air cavalry. The National Armor and Cavalry Museum will be that place.
There are many stories to tell.
Will you help us to tell them to the world?
