The original teletype announcing Germany's surrender in World War Two ended up in a U-S lieutenant's foot locker for some 50 years... after he forwarded the teletype as Dwight Eisenhower ordered.
Now a Beverly Hills collector who's friends with a Virginia Military Institute alumnus is donating the historic teletype to VMI's museum.
Shannon Young takes a look at some of the other rare items in store - if you travel to the museum on your Time Off.

((Tradition is the name of the game at the Virginia Military Institute.
From weekly parades to daily classes, every activity is as much about the past as the future.
[SOT 1:45:51-1:46:09]
[IN Q=The founding superintendent...]

((The founding superintendent of VMI, Francis Henney Smith, had a sense of heritage and tradition and wanted to establish that early in the school's history. So, in 1856, July the fourth in fact, he accepts the first artifacts which ultimately become the VMI Museum.))
[RUNS= 18]

Those artifacts tell stories, not only about the school, but about its often distinguished alumni, students and staff.

((You see the bullet hole in the sleeve that remains requiring his arm to be amputated...))

A well worn coat sports a tell-tale hole marking the beginning of the end for Civil War hero Stonewall Jackson.
After being accidentally shot by his own men he died a week later and was outlived by his horse, Little Sorrel, also on display.
Modern wars are also represented.
A shiny helmet once belonging to VMI alumnus George S. Patton sheds light on the demanding general's penchant for perfection.
And an entire room, the Hall of Valor, is dedicated to the bravery of soldiers who may be lesser known, but are no less important.

((In many instances this is what remains of their father, brother...))
[RUNS= 06]
[OUT Q=their father, brother...]


Bringing you up to present is a glimpse inside life at VMI.
The Institute exists to teach students the character traits, like discipline and honor, that will help them become top-of-the-line citizen soldiers.
The experience is unique for much more than its required uniforms.
[SOT 1:47:11-1:47:31]
[IN Q=There's a lifestyle...]

((There's a lifestyle that's adopted by our students when they become cadets and part of that is the way they live in barracks, which is a restricted environment. Not all of our visitors can go in the barracks so we've recreated that space here in the museum so they can literally walk into this recreated cadet room and get some sense of the spartan lifestyle.))

[OUT Q=of the spartan lifestyle.]


Then you can let those in the know show you the campus.
[SOT 1:51:12-1:51:27]
[IN Q=Tours of the grounds...]

((Tours of the grounds conducted by cadets are always of interest. And then, the George C. Marshall Museum focusing on that very important graduate, class of 1901, is here for the public to explore as well.))
[RUNS= 15]
[OUT Q=explore, as well.]
[SOT (STANDUP) 2:02:45-2:02:55]
[IN Q=After visiting...]

((After visiting the museum and learning about the history, not only of the school, but of some of the school's well known leaders, you can come out here to the parade grounds and catch future leaders in action.))
[RUNS= 10]
[OUT Q=leaders in action.]
[SOT 1:51:54-1:52:56]

((Every Friday at four in the afternoon the cadets form up on the parade ground in a way that would have been very reminiscent and identifiable by Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson themselves.))

Proof that at the Gina Military Institute the future is a product of the past.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration opened the probe Friday, after getting 169 complaints about the Steeltex R-Four-S and A-T light truck tires since August first.
The agency got reports the tires were involved in accidents that killed two people and injured 12 others.
The tires are standard equipment on Ford F-250 and F-350 pickups, the Ford Excursions, and General Motors' Suburban.
