Mountain Warfare Historical Society

For those of you that wish to be a part of history, the Marine Corps Mountain Warfare Historical Society is offering memberships to support the new mountain warfare museum, located at the Mountain Warfare Training Center, in Bridgeport California.


This is a private foundation not a government entity.   Mountain warfare with its associated training has prepared this countries warriors for every conflict from Korea to Afghanistan.  The lessons and hardships that the individual warrior learns to overcome in the snowy mountains help to prepare them to fight and win on ALL FRONTS not just in the mountains.   Help to support the museum and if you are ever fortunate enough to visit the Mountain Warfare Training Center, stop in and get your self a look at some real US military history.  The kind that people don't talk about at parties.  


Better hurry, the opportunity to become  plank holder and be a part of this history is coming to a close.  
Dec 31, 2011 the door shuts forever and you will have lost that chance, but you can still become a member after that.   Click on the rest of this post and highlight and print the application.
