viking73 Posted January 26, 2020 Share #1 Posted January 26, 2020 I've been to the grounds of the former Fort Wolters in Mineral Wells, Texas many times over the last 10 years. This post trained countless G.I.s in WWII (my grandfather among them) and over 40,000 helicopter pilots during the Vietnam War. Despite having been closed in 1973, there are still many cool things to see. Some great, some sad as the post slowly rots away from time, the elements, and vandals. One amazing part to me is the student artwork that still survives in the a couple of the abandoned student barracks buildings. Pictured here are photos of then that I took on one trip to the former post. I don't know if these can do saved and it would sure be a crime if they were destroyed one day...
