17 April COVID-19 Update

The annual Reunion has been re-scheduled to 05-09 Oct. With that being said, the reunion T-shirt will continue to be available for pre-order until 01 Aug 2020. If you mail in your pre-order, it needs to be postmarked by 01 Aug. If it is postmarked after that, I cannot guarantee you will get your shirt.

The Museum continues to be closed, as of now, until at least 27 April, when our Governor will release a new update. Our website is still active, with only items that we have listed.

Once we are able to go back to the museum, I will post another update.

Stay Safe! Stay Home, if you can.

Thank you for your continued support!!!

COVID-19 Update

I should have posted this last week, my apologies!!!

Effective Tuesday, March 24th, the museum, which is where the gift shop is located, closed according to guidance from Fort Hood officials.

We do not have an estimated date that we can re-open.

We do have limited items available on our website & I will be processing mail orders once a week during this time. If we do run out of an item, I cannot allow back orders at this time nor do I have access to our full inventory to re-stock.

If you have tried to call the gift shop, we obviously haven’t been able to listen to messages.

If you need contact us, it’s best to e-mail us at & there will be a faster response time.

Thank you,
