Fort Carson officially broke ground today for its Fourth Infantry Division and Fort Carson Artifact Facility, which will house monographs, scrapbooks, photos and military items from WWI, WWII, Vietnam and Operations Enduring and Iraqi Freedom. All the artifacts are related to the Fourth Infantry Division and Fort Carson.

The 3,600 square foot museum will also have an 1,000 square foot outdoor component, displaying historical military vehicles.

The facility, which is due for completion in October and will be open to the public, is only temporary. Fort Carson has larger plans for a permanent structure, the Mountain Post Historical Center.
