American Footsteps in Taiwan Opens 17 December 2010

The Exhibition opens tomorrow (Friday, 17 December 2010) at 10:00 AM in the National Central Library, just across the street from the National Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall in Taipei.

 The hall way leading to the main exhibition room

American Footsteps moved throughout Taiwan in many ways.  

The Exhibition touches on many examples of our support to the people of Taiwan.  

As you move toward the door to the main Footsteps Exhibition area, a display highlighting historic events is displayed on this exhibit board.

Just a few steps farther, you find this outstanding layout.

Many of you who shared photos on this blog and on the Taipei Air Station Web Site will find of your photos in this display.

 We're inside the main exhibition room now.

Let's move around the room.

A scale model of the new AIT complex, under construction.

We end back at the doorway into the exhibition room.

The military displays are scattered throughout the room.

I have two videos awaiting upload which should be up on Saturday.

I want to thank AIT and all involved in bringing forth this wonderful display of 
American Footsteps in Taiwan.

A "Special" THANK YOU to Scott Ellinger.  Scott has been involved with and working on this exhibit for a couple of years, first in the south of Taiwan, and now here in Taipei.  

The Exhibition is wonderful, first class in every respect.

I will have to visit this place next time I visit Taiwan. I wonder if there will be something that has my father, CMSGT (R) Robert "Charlie" Brown in one of the exhibits. He was there from 1967 until he retired in 1978, then stayed on with AIT from many more years before declining health forced his return in 2002.
