9-11 and Beyond, The Texas National Guard and the War on Terror. Exhibit Opening
Join us for the opening our our new exhibit recognizing the contributions and sacrifices of the Texas Military Forces since 9-11. In the decade since September 11, 2001, more that 23,000 men and women from the Texas Army and Air National Guard have deployed to the battlefronts of Iraq or Afghanistan. This new exhibit will tell the story of their service and sacrifice.
Also as part of this event we will be revealing a new F-16 exhibit out on the parade ground. This jet flew combat missions in Iraq, and is part of the unit which escorted Air Force One on September 11th.
