FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (AP) - A military museum in Fayetteville is ready to open its newest attraction, an interactive exhibit that simulates combat from D-Day over Normandy to a boat ride in Iraq.

The Fayetteville Observer reports (https://bit.ly/1E44aXW) the Pritzker Simulator opens Saturday at the Airborne & Special Forces Museum. It’s named after Jennifer Pritzker, an 82nd Airborne Division veteran whose foundation donated money for the project.

The simulator starts during D-Day over Normandy, France, where viewers will ride along with the 101st Airborne Division in a glider towed behind a cargo plane. It includes a paratrooper jumping into Korea; a helicopter in Vietnam; and soldiers racing through a roadside bomb in Afghanistan.

Officials warn that the simulator provides such a realistic experience that those suffering from post-traumatic stress may not want to use it.
