Happy Veterans Day! We honor all who served.
What's Going On?
Welcome to our first digital Newsletter for the Americans in Wartime Museum and Education Center! A lot has gone on in the past 12 months, so we wanted to bring everyone up to speed.

First and foremost, I am honored to be serving as the CEO of the project. I have been onboard since November 2019, and since that time I have had the opportunity to meet and work with some incredible people – former military, active duty, military families and more.
I am humbled to be part of what is going to be a unique educational experience. For those of you who don’t know about the Americans in Wartime Museum and Education Center, it will be located on approximately 70 acres of land in Dale City, Virginia – a short drive from Washington, D.C. The museum is being built between the National Museum of the Marine Corps and the National Museum of the United States Army, which is expected to open on November 11.

Our museum will be a hands-on and interactive museum with recreations of Landscapes of War – in real scale! We will be featuring a landscape for each major conflict our country has been engaged in from World War I through current conflicts in the Middle East. To date, we have cleared 16 acres and are in the process of clearing another 20 acres over the next few months.
We are hopeful that we will be able to host our next annual Tank Farm Open House at the actual site where you will be able to get up close and personal with our extensive inventory of military tanks and other equipment. All of this is made possible through grants and your generous donations.

WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT to bring this Museum and Educational Center to life so that we can continue to teach our young (and old) the military history of our great country! I hope you will consider making a donation (nothing is too big or too small!) so that we can reach our goal to have all of our Landscapes of War, our Educational Center and our Navy Seal Obstacle course completed as soon as possible. In the meantime, please visit our website to learn more about our progress.

I look forward to having the opportunity to host you and your family at the Tank Farm sometime soon!

Voices of Freedom 2020 Update
If you’re not familiar with our Voices of Freedom team, they do an amazing job capturing the history of our veterans. We have a studio on wheels with our RV where they are able to interview vets and their families around our country. It is an important endeavor as we see our history being rewritten and civics not being taught.

This year began the 10th year for the Voices of Freedom Project. Our goal is to reach 500 interviews this year and we are almost there! On August 27, the Americans in Wartime Museum and Education Center was honored to host Medal of Honor Recipient, Marine Maj. Gen. James Livingston from Mt. Pleasant, SC. During his visit, Dennis Gill, director of our Voices of Freedom Project, had the distinct honor of recording Maj. Gen. Livingston’s experiences, which included commanding our forces in Vietnam and leading the evacuation of Saigon at the end of the Vietnam Conflict. Maj. Gen. Livingston also enjoyed inspecting our tanks, military equipment, and other military artifacts at our Tank Farm.

The VOF project can’t wait to record the many voices whose story tells a tale of the relentless pursuit of freedom from the beaches of Normandy, to the jungles of Vietnam, and on to the deserts of the Middle East. If you are one of those, we’d love to hear your story. Please contact Dennis at dgill@nmaw.org.
