Side 1: Fort Benning - Station Hospital

In 1923 the U.S. Congress appropriated funds for the erection of a hospital at Fort Benning. The hospital complex, consisting of ten buildings, was opened in 1925. During World War Two as many as 36, 000 wounded per year received care at this facility. In 1951, during the Korean War, 25, 000 casualties were treated. Following the 1958 opening of a new hospital this complex served as an out-patient clinic until 1975 when the main building was designated the permanent home of the National Infantry Museum.

Side 2: National Infantry Museum

The National Infantry Museum was established here at the U.S. Army's Infantry Center in October, 1959. The purpose of the Museum is to honor the infantryman and his more that two centuries of proud service to the nation. The Museum also reflects the history of Fort Benning which was established in October 1918. The collection is comprised of weapons, uniforms and accouterments used by the U.S. infantrymen in each of our military engagements. Foreign artifacts as well as military related objects of art are also on display.

The Doughboy ~ Dog Faced Soldier ~ Infantryman
This Museum is dedicated to his honor.
