    Dr. Charles Cureton, director of Army Museums shows the Under Secretary of the Army Joseph W. Westphal two important swords held in the core collection of the United States Army at the U.S. Army Center of Military History's Museum Support Center Facility, May 30, 2012, at Fort Belvoir, Va. The sword in the foreground is an M-1913 Patton Saber, Serial Number 1. Next to it is a sword carried by Capt. John Berry, who commanded the Water Battery during the bombardment of Fort McHenry during the War of 1812. Westphal visited the Museum Support Center Facility to gain situational awareness and view the impressive collection of over 16,000 pieces of American history housed in the state-of-the-art facility.
