Mississippi Armed Forces Museum, Camp Shelby – Mississippi Mondays November 11, 2019

I am taking a detour south in (as I was headed north and was about halfway up Mississippi) for this week’s Mississippi Mondays post. In honor of Veterans Day, I chose Mississippi Armed Forces Museum, Camp Shelby which I saw on Wikipedia –  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_museums_in_Mississippi. I looked for other military museums in my search that were more northerly, but didn’t see any on Wikipedia‘s link above.

Official website: https://armedforcesmuseum.us/;


Find an Army Museum: https://history.army.mil/museums/directory.html – a new resource I was not aware of.
