    Recently I took the family to Branson Missouri for a week. (Another good part of being a new guy at work is getting all the premium time off:rofl::upeyes:) Anyway, while there I found a War history museum there for WW1 through Desert Storm. There was lots of equipment, uniforms and such but also lots of WEAPONS of the days:supergrin:.

    Anyway, I thought that I would try to share some of them so I took lots of pics of the weapons. I am going to try to keep them in order as far as what was used in which war but some might get switched around as to when my cell phone camera sent the pic to photobucket and I may not remember what was when. Also, so many have been used in more than one conflict.

    I also included a couple of pictures of other things I thought interesting but did not go out of my way to get uniform pictures :yawn: just not my thing. Also, for the record I did have permission to take pics etc from the staff. Work with me trying to get this together I will post when all pics are done.

    The last ride for many returning vets of WW2. The inside is metal lined I guess to help keep the remains cold.

    Well that is all the pics I took. There was so much more there to see too. If anyone gets the chance to go see the place I highly recommend it. Very nice people running the place too insisted that it don't belong to them but to all vets. They felt bad having to collect a admission fee from me because I was wearing one of my old military jackets. But the do have to pay bills and I wouldn't have taken free admission because of that very fact anyway.

    Lots more stuff than I have posted about here. Very good place for the history/military/ or gun buff to go see.
