Fort Carson museum needs millions to expand

A new expanded military museum outside Fort Carson needs $5.5 million in order to break ground on time this spring.
The Mountain Post Historical Association wants to expand a museum outside Gate 1. The expanded museum would pay homage to each unit that has served at Fort Carson since the post was founded in 1942.
The association has raised $500,000. Additional money has been pledged to the project, and the Historical Association president hopes the donors come through as the museum's target ground-breaking date nears.
The museum's budget was cut to $6 million in 2011 from an initial proposal of more than $18 million. The change came after the Army pulled nearly $10 million from the project due to budget constraints.
