The National Museum of the Army

The Nat. Museum of the Army will break ground at Fort Belvoir Virginia later this year.  US Wings is proud to be a Grassroots Volunteer as an advocate for the National Army Museum.  US Wings will assist in the Museums mission to reach millions of citizens and Army veterans to share the good news about the Museum and ask for support to make the Museum a reality.    The Foundation needs to reach or exceed $200 million to ensure the Museum is fully funded.
Individuals, organizations and corporations across America can help generate funds to build the Museum.  “We are growing a network of grassroots volunteers and each volunteer has found his or her own way to advocate for the National Army Museum,” explains Beth Schultz Seaman, Director of Grassroots Development.
The National Museum of the United States Army will celebrate the selfless service and sacrifice of over 30 million men and women who have worn the Army uniform since 1775. The Museum will be a technological marvel incorporating the latest advances in Museum exhibitions while providing advanced educational opportunities that will capture the attention of visitors, old and young. As the Army’s national landmark, the Museum will honor the American Soldier; past, present, and future, and will provide an interactive educational experience explaining the Army’s role in creating and defending our nation, as well as the Army’s social initiatives and contributions to society for more than 200 years. The Museum will also provide one special and central place where Soldiers and Army veterans and their families can reflect, remember, and enjoy the enduring spirit of Army camaraderie.
The National Army Museum will be located on 40 acres on the grounds of beautiful Fort Belvoir, Va., less than 30 minutes south of our nation’s capital in Washington, D.C. The main building will be approximately 175,000 square feet and display selections from 16,000 pieces from the Army Art Collection and 50,000 artifacts, documents, and images. The vast majority of these rare and priceless artifacts have never been seen by the American people. Outside this facility will be a park with a memorial garden and parade ground. Space is being planned to accommodate ceremonies, reenactments, lectures, educational programs, conferences and reunions. The Museum will welcome an estimated 750,000 visitors every year.
Please join US Wings in becoming a Grassroot  Volunteer to help promote the National Army Museum.  You can host fundraising events such as barbecues, raffles, auctions, and carnivals.  Use the Museum brochure to encourage any who have Army family, to honor those Soldiers through the Registry of the American Soldier.
