The Airborne and Special Operations Museum, Fayetteville

We lucked out and just happened to go check out the Airborne and Special Operations Museum on National Airborne Day (Saturday, August 15, who knew?!) in downtown Fayetteville. This year’s annual National Airborne Day commemorated the 69th anniversary of the Army Parachute Test Platoon’s first official jump and the ninth anniversary of the museum.

It was a really nice, visual, free museum. There were a couple of things that cost money if you wanted to participate: a flight simulator and an HD movie on the military. As you can tell from the pictures the kids had a great time looking at different weapons and transport vehicles used from WW II to the present day and meeting soldiers currently serving our country. This is an especially terrific trip for little boys but Meadow also really enjoyed it.

Were you totally freaking out when your son was looking like Rambo?! YIkes! He looks like a kinder, gentler Rambo, but I wouldn't want to meet him in a dark alley knowwhatimsayin?
