The Texas Military Forces Museum recounts the exploits of the Texas National Guard in wars from the Texas Revolution to today. A 1918 mess hall houses thousands of war relics and historic photos. Artifacts from the 36th Infantry Division include German Field Marshall Erwin Rommel’s hat captured in North Africa during World War II. Other exhibits cover historical gems such as the Choctaw Indian code talkers of World War I and the “Lost Battalion” of World War II fighting in Europe. Camp Mabry also displays military vehicles, artillery and aircraft.
