Washington, DC (NAPSI) - A foundation that honors the U.S. Army has found a new way to salute the efforts of organizations that serve veterans.
The Army Historical Foundation, the nonprofit designated to lead the campaign to build the National Museum of the United States Army, has created an exclusive opportunity for veteran service organizations.
The National Army Museum will be the first museum to tell the entire storied history of the nation’s oldest and largest military service. Interactive galleries will educate visitors on the Army’s role in times of war and peace, the relationship between the Army and the nation it serves, and the Army’s contributions to geography, science, technology, engineering and math.
By supporting the museum, Army units, alumni groups, and military and veteran associations of all kinds can have their efforts permanently honored in the Veterans’ Hall, a space within the museum that will host official functions and showcase pieces of the Army’s collection of combat artwork and artifacts.
Sponsoring organizations will have their names permanently displayed in the Veterans’ Hall. Groups offering higher levels of support will have enhanced access to the Hall, receive invitations to campaign events, and get personalized tours of the museum.
In addition, the Foundation collects stories of soldiers and veterans through the Registry of the American Soldier. This electronic database is open to anyone who served in the U.S. Army. It will be accessible via computer kiosks in the museum and online. The Registry is free and ensures a soldier’s story is forever told in the future home of Army history.
