The National Center for Preservation and Training (NCPTT) and the National Museum of the Pacific War held a three-day symposium, June 4-6, 2019 in Fredericksburg, Texas, discussing the preservation of United States military heritage from World War II to the Cold War.

The symposium brought together conservators, architects, engineers, landscape architects, museum and site managers, and other cultural resource professionals to discuss state-of-the-science efforts to document, conserve, treat and adaptively reuse sites and features from our military heritage from 1939 to 1991.
