If you do go, here are some places you might investigate. Eglin AFB,
Hurlburt Field, Tyndall AFB, and Ft. Rucker are all within an easy drive of
Ft. Walton Beach. If you have any military background, you might can stay
at a BOQ on the base; it would probably be cheaper than a civilian hotel.
The AF Armament Museum would probably be the most likely place to find out
Some of these are inside the gates of their respective posts/bases; that
means you'll have to badge in. Call ahead and find out how difficult this
will be. The Air Force tends to be a little easier than the Army, but every
base is different.
The AF Armament Museum is not inside the gates of Eglin AFB; it should be
like going to any museum -- just drive up and go in.
If you are willing to drive a little further, try the Air Force Historical
Research Agency at Maxwell AFB in Montgomery AL.
Good Luck, and regards,
