Visit the 45th Infantry Museum

Based in Oklahoma City and one of the first National Guard units to be activated for World War II,  from the shores of France and all the way to Berlin liberating Dachau along the way, they later served in the brutal Korean War.

The 45th Infantry Museum honors not just their service, but that of all Oklahomans.
