Duty First: 100 Years of the Big Red One
Explore the epic one-hundred-year history of the 1st Infantry Division through the eyes of five soldiers from the founding of the Big Red One in 1917 to present day in our new exhibit, Duty First: 100 Years of the Big Red One.

Immerse yourself in the exceptional history of the 1st Infantry Division in our Tallgrass Gallery and get to know five heroic soldiers and their personal chronicles through WWI, WWII, Vietnam, The Gulf Wars, the Kosovo conflict and the military activity of today. 

Our younger visitors are being recruited to Rags's Confidence Course in the Mezzanine Gallery! In this Camp Funston "boot camp", children can "train" alongside Rags, the lovable military pooch who served as the mascot of the 1ID in WWI.

Duty First: 100 Years of the Big Red One is a collaborative exhibit produced by Flint Hills Discovery Center staff and Fort Riley Museum Complex. Duty first, victory.
