    An armored personnel carrier used in the Iraq War in 2003 is the first artifact to be installed at the National Museum of the United States Army.

    It’s so big and so heavy, crews needed to place it in its permanent display location before building the museum's walls around it.

    The Army is the only military service without a national museum.

    "This museum will give the American people a look at their history through the eyes of the men and women who have served this country selflessly since the 1600s," Chairman of the Board of the Army Historical Foundation Gen. Gordon Sullivan said.
