But the crown jewel of the collection is the 16,000 pieces of fine art the Army owns.

Don't they mean the US taxpayer owns?

The entire collection could be made accessible to the public, if the funds for a museum could be raised.

Are they joking?

However, there are major fundraising hurdles to jump before the museum can be built. The foundation’s president recently told the Washington Post that it has raised $76 million of the $175 million required for the museum and predicts the museum could open in 2018. The plan is to build the museum at Fort Belvoir.

So the US Army's budget alone for 2013 was about 185 billion dollars. And they can't afford 100 million for this?!?! And yet they can waste billions on programs like Star Wars, the Crusader, et al. Well I suppose if the pigs in the MIC aren't getting their noses in the trough it can't be done, right? Now, this is criminal.
