Help support Army History
Posted by Daniel Sauerwein on November 12, 2007
I would like to encourage all my readers to consider joining a great organization that I belong to and support their efforts to build the National Museum of the U.S. Army. The Army Historical Foundation has been around since 1983 and seeks to preserve the history of the U.S. Army. It publishes On Point, the quarterly publication of the foundation, as well as two definitive works on Army history, The U.S. Army: A Complete History and The Army. In addition, the Foundation is raising funds to construct the National Museum of the U.S. Army, which will be in the Washington, DC area and will showcase many wonderful exhibits dedicated to Army history. If you are an Army veteran, or someone who values Army history, I encourage you to visit their website and join the Foundation, or give a Foundation membership as a gift, as it is affordable at only $25 a year for a basic membership.
In addition, the Foundation also has created The Registry of the American Soldier, where families and veterans can post information on themselves or loved ones who served in the Army at any time from the Revolution to today. This registry will be on display in both the museum and online for those who cannot visit the museum and is a great way to honor your loved ones for their service.
Again, this is a great organization that I encourage everyone to consider supporting, as your money will be going to the cause of historical preservation for future generations to understand and appreciate the history of the Army. Join me and together let’s help build a museum and tell the story of the U.S. Army.
