Texas Military Forces' Open House and Air Show Media Day

CAMP MABRY, Texas (April 10, 2014) – The Texas Military Forces Open House featuring the American Heroes Air Show invite members of the media to a preview day, on Friday, April 25, 2014, from 10:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Camp Mabry in Austin, Texas. 

During this preview, media will receive the opportunity to witness the Texas Army National Guard in action, as Soldiers will take part in the final rehearsals leading up to the two-day Open House. In addition, the traveling Vietnam Wall will be on display, with final preparations for the World War II reenactments also taking place.

This year’s theme, “Partnerships that Matter,” is designed to highlight the relationships between the Texas Military Forces and its local, state, and federal agencies-to include the City of Austin. Furthermore, the Open House serves as an interagency training exercise that allows the Texas National Guard to demonstrate their roles and capabilities and give back to its citizens.

The free two-day event will be open to the public from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., both Saturday and Sunday April 26-27, 2014. For complete information, event schedule and map, visit the Texas Military Forces Website at
