Sept: Confederate Ghost Squadron

Next door to Odessa is Midland, TX -- home of the Confederate Ghost Squadron Museum. Renamed several years later, it is now the Commemorative Air Force Museum. Thinking the first name had more panache.

Before you get to the musem, you pass a memorial to those who served in Vietnam with a roll of those Texans who died there.

The museum itself is remarkable with exhibits and library and displays. An incredible amount of work has gone into this place -- highly recommend, well-worth a visit.

There was also a section dedicated to 10th Mountain, which was Alex's division (2nd Battalion, 4th Brigade, 10th Mountain Division) One entire section of the museum is devoted to noseplane art. You cannot take photos in that room, but there was an image outside to give you an idea.
