The goal of the society is to preserve and restore examples of American military equipment. The Museum is located at 1918 North Rosemead Boulevard, South El Monte California, about a 1/4 mile north of the Rosemead exit on the 60 freeway in the city of South El Monte in the Whittier Narrows Recreation Area.
