AMARILLO, Texas (KAMR/KCIT) – The Texas Panhandle War Memorial Center (TPWM) announced that beginning in February, hours of operation for the facility will expand to Saturdays.

“Thanks to our great volunteer staff, the War Memorial will be open on Saturdays beginning in February,” said TPWM Executive Director Perry Gilmore, Ph.D., “Our Saturday hours will be 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.”

Gilmore encouraged members of the community to take the opportunity to visit the center’s historical exhibits, including the Medal of Honor, USS Arizona, USS Indianapolis, and artifacts from WWI, WWII, Vietnam, Korea, Desert Storm, Operation Iraqi Freedom, and Afghanistan. The center’s “high-tech” Education Center has focused on the 11 wars in which the US has been involved since its founding.
