Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio

I went to Fort Sam Houston on June 22, 2013. The drive to San Antonio from Chicago took 17 hours and I slept for about half of them. When we went to Fort Sam we couldn’t find the entrance so we had to drive around to find it. We found an entrance and then we went through security. Then we got lost trying to find the museum inside Fort Sam. After we found the museum we went in and we saw people with gas masks and other artifacts. The lady in charge of the museum told me about where my great-grandfather would have been when he was there and gave me a patch. My godfather, Uncle Phil, did his reserve training there. We saw lots of cool things like a helicopter, a tank, 4 cannons, 2 jeeps, and an antiaircraft gun.
