Salado Museum and College Park is hosting a special exhibit of military war photographs in the Lucile A. Robertson Center during the months of July and August. The large collection includes images taken during World War I, World War II and the Vietnam War. The museum exhibit also includes military uniforms and other artifacts from the time.
“We chose this year to host the exhibit as it marks the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II and the 45th anniversary of the end of the Vietnam conflict,” says Museum Executive Director Dave Swarthout,. “We are proud to provide an opportunity for the public to view these incredibly moving photographs and see firsthand the sacrifices that were made to protect our freedom.”
The collection of 3 by 3-foot photo panels were formerly displayed in a military museum at Fort Hood. The Salado Museum military exhibit is open Mondays through Fridays, 10 am to 4 pm, July 1st – August 31st, and is free to the public. Donations are appreciated.
Please bring your entire family to view and learn from these photos and artifacts. We are observing all Covid-19 guidelines and the space in our hall is large enough for safe social distancing.
