Telling the Story of Our Soldiers

The Mountain Post Historical Association is a nonprofit corporation founded to build the Mountain Post Historical Center. The museum will tell the story of Fort Carson and pay tribute to its Soldiers – past, present and future – who served there. The Center will be a distinctive landmark located just outside the main gate of Fort Carson, directly across from Cheyenne Mountain State Park.

Primarily, the Center will promote greater appreciation and understanding of contributions made by Fort Carson Soldiers since Fort Carson’s activation in 1942. It will also serve as a tangible salute to thousands of men and women who served there, hundreds of whom made the ultimate sacrifice to protect the freedoms we enjoy today.

A board member of the Mountain Post Historical Center Association relates the following:

“I recently attended a World War II dinner for my father’s company and only 7 of the original 150 members remain. They wonder: how they will be remembered? Will they disappear into the dustbin of history until someone discovers an old diary or letter?"

Help us build the Mountain Post Historical Center

Many riveting stories are waiting to be told. Many fascinating artifacts are waiting to be shared. Whether you are a Soldier or a veteran, whether you want to pay tribute to a family member or friend who served, or are simply a patriot who wants to say “thanks,” please support the campaign today.

The Mountain Post Historical Center will be a tribute to the commitment and sacrifices of Soldiers who have served at or deployed from Colorado... It underscores American values and the strength of our nation. It will be a symbol of Colorado’s support to our men and women in uniform.

Lieutenant General Edward Soriano, Retired

Fort Carson has and will continue to play a key role in the defense of our Nation. The sacrifices of so many who served at the Mountain Post, both military and civilian – should never be forgotten or taken for granted.

General Dennis Reimer, Retired

The Mountain Post has a long and important history, from WWII through the current conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. The Center, once completed, will tell the story of the men and women who have served our country at Fort Carson.
