This page was set up to identify and gather potential stories to highlight in the new galleries. It has largely served that purpose: the designs are complete; artifact selection is complete; and we're just waiting on funding to fabricate and install the new exhibits. Our funding was diverted to help rebuild Camp Lejeune after it was clobbered by a hurricane. So your patience is greatly appreciated.
I've also used it to keep interested parties apprised of our progress. My retirement nears and it's time to shut down this page. I strongly urge you to follow the Museum's progress at National Museum of the Marine Corps, which is managed by Angie McCrary.
Thanks for everyone's interest and support over the past few years. We could not have accomplished our mission without your input, stories, and objects. I hope you're able to visit the new galleries when they open.
Many thanks, Semper Fi, and God Speed
