SAN ANTONIO (AP) - Fans of an Air Force base security museum are scrambling to apply pressure on the Air Force to save the 35-year-old museum from closing.

The San Antonio Express-News (https://bit.ly/ZdP3iq) describes the Security Forces Museum at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland as a modest and obscure facility. The museum lost its full-time curator and was unable to replace her because of budget cuts.

The reaction brought an angry response from more than 5,800 people signing onto a special Facebook page and an online White House petition prompted the Air Education and Training Command to promise not to close the museum completely. It won’t be open on a daily basis but will be available for occasional tours and Security Forces troops at Lackland.
