May is Historic Preservation Month!

The mural depicted on the 2014 Historic Preservation Month poster is one of a collection of World War II-era murals located in the original Enlisted Men’s Service Club at the Casper Army Air Base which is now home to the Veterans Memorial Museum. The base, a WWII military air field in use from 1942 – 1945, was the training site for an estimated 16,000 to 20,000 bomber crewmen. Stories of Wyoming military veterans of all branches of service, from World War I to the modern war on terrorism, come alive through artifacts and guided tours of the museum. The Casper Army Air Base, located at 3740 Jourgensen Ave. at the Natrona County International Airport in Casper, Wyoming, is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. More information on the murals is available here.
