How the proposed museum is unique from other collections...

Rather than focus on weapons and machines of war, the proposed military museum will display hundreds of historical and significant artifacts that illustrate the  evolution of life support and survival equipment and apparel for the benefit of two distinct stakeholders:

For children, Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) education.

For adults, Science, Technology, Engineering, and Medicine, Manufacturing, and Materials (STEM3) education.
