During World War I, the Army began commissioning artists to deploy into the war zone and paint the scenes they observed. This practice has continued to this day. Much of the museum’s collection consists of these commissioned wartime pieces. The collection also keeps hold of valuable donated military art and historical pieces dating back to the Mexican American War.

What's the F*****g point of keeping all these fantastic pieces of art hidden away? They should build a proper Armed Forces museum preferably in Washington DC, and display this artwork for the world to see!
Anyways, whose dumb idea was this to keep this away from art lovers and the public at large? Is there a hidden agenda?
However, there are major fundraising hurdles to jump before the museum can be built. The foundation’s president recently told the Washington Post that it has raised $76 million of the $175 million required for the museum and predicts the museum could open in 2018. The plan is to build the museum at Fort Belvoir.
