Art Curator Sarah Forgey shows Under Secretary of the Army Joseph W. Westphal four watercolors by Adolf Hitler at the U.S. Army Center of Military History's Museum Support Center Facility, May 30, 2012, at Fort Belvoir, Va. During his time in Vienna and Munich, Hitler supported himself as a street artist. He applied twice to the Vienna Academy of Fine Arts and was twice denied admission. These four watercolors were owned by Heinrich Hoffman, Hitler's personal photographer. 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.
