MUSEUM MONDAY - The US Army BG Don F. Pratt Memorial Museum, Ft. Campbell, KY- a
Artifact Spotlight.

The Pratt exhibits and collection recall the battles and exploits of these historic units from WWII to the present. Our spotlight artifact is the CG-4 Waco glider of WWII fame.
The CG-4 Waco was the 3rd most produced aircraft of WWII. Though 13,500 were produced, only a handful remain. It was towed behind a C-47 into a Landing Zone secured behind enemy lines the night before by lightly armed and supplied parachutist.

It could carry a 13-man glider infantry squad, or because its nose which could be opened, it could carry either a jeep, an anti-tank gun, a small howitzer, mortars, heavy machine guns, or 2,200 lbs. of supplies or ammunition. #WWII #WWIIGliders #FortCampbell #AirAssault
