Join us in Fort Discover where younger visitors can use imaginative play to climb our Army tower, radio friends, drop cargo supplies, launch a rocket, drive a jeep, serve up chow in the dining facility, and check out different uniforms with Camo Camera! Our animated Army mules, Buckshot and Blackjack, use age-appropriate interactive games to teach children about Army innovations across history—such as interstate highways, the Panama Canal, and satellite communications.
