The WWI, WWII, Resistance, Indochina and Algeria War Veterans' memorial and museum.

The Boissezon Mlitarial in Tarn (southern France) was built to the memory of recent conflicts by WWI, WWII, Resistance, Indochina and Algeria veterans. This Memorial Museum, in other words, has been open for slightly over a year. It features a number of interesting collections but, perhaps more importantly, caters to widespread demand to preserve and protect the area's heritage and history, and to showcase tangible and intangible local and national wealth. Donations, acquisitions and exchanges have enhanced these collections. Museum authorities are also drafting a new improvement and financing application which the Castres-Mazamet Community of Communities has agreed to back. Souvenir Français financing will be used to build a Salle d'Honneur (Hall of Honour) in the former chapel to hold the reliques of local celebrities and disbanded regiment and corps flags. The Militarial's library will be transferred to a new buildings and include an annex housing records and documents. A collection of 3,500 books and magazines will be available for members of the public to peruse on-site or borrow.
