    October 7, 2017, Saturday, at 9am The 3rd Annual Human Foosball Tournament

    Sign up today to play Human Foosball. There was hardly a barracks back in the day that didn’t have a foosball table in the day room. Bring these memories to life and play in our third annual tournament.          Teams of six players battle to win cash prizes for first through third place. Team registers signed up NLT 15 September will get team colored shirts. Individual registered players will be placed on a team as we get individual players. Individual registration is $10 dollars but a team of six can register for $50 for the whole team.

    One of the biggest things in 2017 is the 100th Anniversary of the 82D Airborne Division. Listen to the All American Legacy Podcast here!

    The Airborne & Special Operations Museum Foundation supports the museum with marketing, advertising and financial support for its programs and exhibits. Opening the doors on August 16th, 2000, the 60th anniversary of the original United States Army’s Test Platoon’s first parachute jump, the museum offers free admission, a main exhibit gallery, temporary gallery, four-story tall theater, video theater and a motion simulator ride. It is located in Historic Downtown Fayetteville on the corner of Bragg Boulevard and Hay Street, adjacent to the city’s Freedom Memorial Park and the recently built North Carolina Veteran’s Park. The main gallery is designed as a self-guiding tour, in chronological order, through the history of the airborne and special operations soldiers, from 1940 to the present. The temporary gallery changes throughout the year and displays a myriad of exhibits pertaining to the United States Army, airborne and special operation units through their history and conflicts from World War II to the present. For a nominal fee visitors can ride the 24 seat motion simulator. Find our privacy policy here.
