An Exhibit Honoring Americans Who Served

In commemoration of the 70th anniversary of the Battle of the Bulge, the newly renovated Bastogne War Museum premiered the exhibit From Bastogne to Texas 

The exhibit tells the story of five former students of Texas A&M University. These five are representative of all Americans who served in World War II

Through them a story is told of dedication, sacrifice, reconciliation, healing, and deep ties, both personal and economic, between people an ocean apart

Upon completion of its 18 month stay in Bastogne, the exhibit came to Texas

During a Belgian Royal Trade Mission to Texas led by HRH Princess Astrid, the Belgian Princess visited the exhibit and presented her country’s second highest order of Chivalry, the Commander in the Order of the Crown, to Willie Peña ‘42, one of the five Aggies whose story is told in the exhibit

A site has been selected for construction of a Military Heritage Center on land made available by the City of College Station, Texas. The location, which is adjacent to the Brazos Valley Veterans Memorial in Veterans Park, will accommodate a 20,000 square foot building

 The Center’s exhibits and educational programs will include–on a permanent and visiting basis–not only the Battle of the Bulge and World War II, but also other military conflicts in which Americans have served
