When my daughter and grandchildren came to visit me, I brought them to visit this museum on Ft. Bliss. The kids really liked the museum and had plenty of questions.

With a history like that of the 1st Armor, I expected more. Pershing's staff car and the role that Patton played in the Mexican raids was interesting.
