Help us honor Pennsylvanians who have served

Donate to support PA recognition in the National Museum of the US Army

Support the Museum

American Legion post 405 is raising funds to support the National Museum of the US Army.  Opening at Ft Belvoir in Virginia, 2019, this museum will tell the story of our Army not just through artifacts, but through the personal perspectives of those who lived it.  Much of the content is given context through the stories of the "Average G.I." men and women who served.  Please help us raise funds to help create this important focal point for our Nation's history.  Our goal is to raise one dollar for every PA Veteran (about 1 million)

You can add your story to the Museum here: Soldier Registry
