Roadtrip: Airborne and Special Operations Museum – Fayetteville, NC

By Mark A. Leon

Just a few hours away in Fayetteville, North Carolina is the Airborne and Special Operations Museum and it may be one of the most memorable historic museum experiences in the Carolinas.  With the design and quality of a museum that would make Washington, D.C. jealous, this tribute to the 82nd Airborne out of nearby Fort Bragg and their impact on World War I through today is an emotional ride that will leave you in awe.

We take tremendous pride in honoring those that have served in the South.  Their dedication and courageous acts will forever be honored.  To experience not only their contributions, but to put you in their shoes is a remarkable feat that this museum has achieved.  From the parking lot to the trenches of France and Vietnam, you are transformed to the places where boys became men and freedom was preserved.

Experience the humanity of war, the visual amazement of the scenes of fear and strategic maneuvers and walk through a recollection of 100 years of protecting and preserving freedom around the world.

This is truly a remarkable place for all ages.  Did we mention it is free.
