COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) – We often feature stories about the National Infantry Museum at Fort Benning and we're proud to support its many events and exhibits that memorialize the role of the Infantry in US military history.
Now the National Infantry Museum is in the running to be the nation's number one free museum in a contest in USA Today.
We urge you to go to our WTVM.com website or mobile app and click on the voting link to make it happen.
You can vote once each day to make the NIM, as it's known to most of us, the top free museum in the country. And they deserve to win.
If you've never been to the NIM, we hope you plan a visit soon. Among the stunning displays is a ¾-scale replica Vietnam Wall.
In 2017 we can look forward to a large-scale memorial to the servicemen and women who gave their lives in the Global War on Terrorism. Nothing could be more relevant right now.
Voting in USA Today's contest for best free museum ends Aug. 29 and the 10 Best Free Museums will then be revealed on Sept. 2nd.
Let's all make sure the National Infantry Museum wins the contest and leads the way just like the Army infantry always leads the way on the battlefield, with distinction and honor: in the past, present and future.
