Yes, I'm seriously looking for artillery. It's for display at the H.E.A.R.T.S Veterans Museum in Huntsville, Texas. (Google HEARTS museum for yourself to learn more.) It's the second largest veterans museum in the nation. It has examples of artifacts from every conflict beginning with the American Revolution. It has displays of uniforms, weaponry, communications gear, aviation, armor, and more, but no artillery. Not one example.

Size matters not. Although the museum is bursting at the seams with displays, it has a lot of acreage to fill. Indeed, it is presently preparing to install a replica of the Vietnam Memorial Wall.

In your comments, please tag any and all members of RP whom you think might have an interest in this project.

Also, if you live in the area or travelling here, stop by and visit. The museum is located on Interstate 45 about an hour north of Houston and two hours south of Dallas.

CPT Jack Durish Talk to the National Museum of the Pacific War in Fredericksburg, TX. They have a pretty good static display, and they know where to get stuff. Here is their website:

CPT Jack Durish - DRMO, or the boneyards for each service. MCLB Albany GA for USMC. I never demil'ed one so I don't know where they go, mostly DRMO or whatever is in place now. Small arms were sent to NWS Crane IN. Ft. Sill is a good start. When bugging out the tubes should be blown up at a minimum.

Fort Sill, Oklahoma is the home of Artillery, the museum there would be the first place I would look.
