U.S. Army John F. Kennedy Special Warfare Museum

U.S. Army John F. Kennedy Special Warfare Museum

This museum depicts army history and traditions, as well as other Army Special Operation Forces.

The museum, operated under the auspices of the US Army John F. Kennedy Special Warfare Center and School, is a three-dimensional training aid, exposing students to their long heritage of the soldiers and organizations who preceded them. This includes such heroic examples as the First Special Service Force, the Office of Strategic Service (OSS) and Detachment 101 in World War II, the Korean Conflict, to modern actions in Iraq and Afghanistan. It also serves to illustrate the unique and specialized part played by all aspects of the Army Special Operations community both in conflict and during crucial roles in peacetime, The museum has also proven itself to be a valuable recruiting catalyst.

We hope you enjoy our work.
