At Thanksgiving I drove up to Camp Shelby with my Dad, a WWII Army veteran who had trained there with his division before shipping overseas. We were really impressed with the Armed Forces Museum and it's staff. The displays were first rate and comprehensive and they have A LOT of military equipment on display outside. Armor, artillery, trucks and a 57mm anti tank gun like my Dad crewed in the war. Camp Shelby was a major training center during WWII and continued that role till this past year when the deployments to Iraq & Afghanistan wound down. Apparently, it currently has a much reduced mission. The positive for the general public is that the gates are no longer manned and you don't need a military ID to enter the installation and visit this most excellent museum. Always has been worth a visit - now it's easily accessible.
