Money and might can only accomplish so much. Sometimes, creativity and boldness count. But I guess that's the lesson of Fayetteville's North Carolina's Airborne and Special Forces Museum, isn't it? The boldness of the design, the daring scope of its collections. Daring. -Make no mistake, real men were behind this museum to real men. No puffery. No posturing. Damn, what a cool museum.
If you have a son who could benefit from seeing heroes and heroic deeds, this place is a must for your fall road trip calendar. -Fayettesville's a very nice surprise too. Home to a great downtown with some pretty good restaurants. -Pay off the Little Lady with the promise of a great meal after accompanying you through the museum. -However, you may be surprised at how interested the Right Lady (yours!) may be in learning about this rare kind of bravery.
