The original National Infantry Museum was opened in 1959 and contained thousands of small-arms and tens of thousands of related military artefacts. Its many exhibits included military art by distinguished American artists, documents signed by each of the presidents of the U.S., a railway engine, a Gatling Gun, a special collection concerning General Bradley, and one of the most complete collections of military small-arms in the U.S. The museum’s collection also included military vehicles.
The original National Infantry Museum was housed inside Fort Benning but on 19 June 2009 a new museum building, now named the National Infantry Museum and Soldier Center, was opened in Patriot Park on the outskirts of the base. It has a Bradley on display but it is assumed that the other vehicles in the museum’s collection are now in storage.

Unique ID: 1315
Serial Number: 25054: consistent with registration, though “16071” is engraved below the registration on left rear hull side (source: J. DeMarco/G104).
Registration: 3033584: “3033584-S” engraved into left rear hull side. “3036792” (previously “W-3067668”) painted on rear hull sides.
Name:
Other Identification: Metal fixings welded on turret and hull sides and across engine deck. “E 4151 B150 L0 [G] 3” cast into right transmission cover. “E1231 B439 L0 [G] 2” cast into left transmission cover. “050878 [G]A 110” cast into turret. White stars in broken circles painted on turret sides and glacis. (2004: White stars in full circles painted on turret sides and glacis; three white rings painted around gun barrel; painted overall in a brown and cream camouflage scheme. 1980s: White stars painted on turret sides and glacis; white stripe painted around turret; three white rings painted around gun barrel).

The original registration number of this M4 is probably the stamped number (3033584) so it would have been built by American Locomotive in July 1943. The foundry symbol cast into the turret indicates that the turret was made by General Steel. The unusual fixings and weld scars may indicate it was used for some kind of floatation tests. (Source: J. DeMarco/G104).

Unique ID: 1435
Serial Number:
Registration:
Name: “TOP GUN” painted on gun barrel sides.
Other Identification: “D50878[G]E” cast into turret. Plaque fixed to right hull side. White stars painted on turret sides. (2004: “31 2-69Δ” painted on right transmission cover and left rear hull. “B66” painted on left transmission cover and right rear hull. “CONGRATULATIONS ON A JOB SUPERBLY DONE” painted on side appliqué armour plates. “1000 POINTS TC – CAPT NUNN GNR-SGT LACHANCE LDR-SPC HENDRIX DVR-SPC DIAZ” painted on turret sides).

The characteristics of this M4 (multi-part glacis, lifting lugs with rectangular pads, bow MG bulge) indicate that it was probably built by American Locomotive early in 1943. The foundry symbol cast into the turret indicates that the turret was made by General Steel. (Source: J. DeMarco/G104). It is fitted with an oversize fake bow machine gun. It also has a bracket on the glacis that may indicate it was fitted with a dozer blade at some time.
