Help Save the Museum of the American GI for future Generations. Is a Museum Dedicated to Preserving History, Honoring Veterans and Educating Future Generations of more value than a road? If your answer is yes. please sign this petition.

The current BCS MPO 2050 Thoroughfare Plan has a proposed road crossing the museum's WWII battle fields, Living History Trails and WWI Trench System on which construction will begin this summer. If the 2050 Thoroughfare Plan is approved on June 26, 2017 by the MPO Policy Board, your children will probably not be able to see historical reenactments like the one presented in the video in the link below. The proposed road goes right through the battlefield seen on the video. Please help us save the museum for the future!

We understand the need to plan for future growth of the community. We simply ask the MPO Policy Board to consider the multiple ways the museum positively impacts the community from education, culture to tourism along with the “public good” that the museum accomplishes. College Station is growing south towards the museum. We can not wait until the area around the museum is built up to ask Brazos County and the city of College Station to not build a road that has been on a planning map for years. The time to act is now!

We are one of the few museums in the south that can hold living history education events on museum property. Most other organization hold events on public land owned by the city, state or federal government! The museum is more than just a building to display tanks, military vehicles and artifacts. Our vehicles are not simply part of static displays; rather they are part of our mission to educate the public by displaying the vehicles in action which requires land! Each year the museum is growing larger, reaching more people. Special events and living history displays are added annually. You can help save the museum by signing this petition to the BCS MPO Policy Board members respectfully requesting that they reject the 2050 MPO Thoroughfare Plan until the road crossing the museum property at 19124 Highway 6 South is removed or relocated off of museum property.

Thank you!
The Museum of the American G.I.
College Station, Texas
