Please join the National Center for Preservation and Training (NCPTT) and the National Museum of the Pacific War in beautiful Texas Hill County for a three-day symposium discussing the preservation of United States military heritage from World War II to the Cold War.

War machines: planes, tanks, and guns
Military materials: concrete, metals, plastics, composites
Home front sites: factories and shipyards
Camps: Relocation and Prisoner-of-war
Nuclear Age sites: testing grounds and development sites
Cold War sites: bunkers, silos, and rockets
Remembrances: monuments and memorials
