    I'll put in a plug for the 45th ID museum in OKC. It's fantastic.

    As an aside, 45th IBCT (the successor to 45th ID) is now in Afghanistan. Not just part of it, as I understand, but the whole thing. I'm pretty sure this is the first time they've been deployed in total since the Korean War.

    Cool. I know some of those guys. I wish there was more stories being written about them. Not much last time I checked.
