Because a great Army deserves a great Museum.For far too long the US Army has lacked both a comprehensive story place and a fitting tribute to relate and recognize the personal and professional sacrifices of its Soldiers. It is now time to hear them, and to say thanks to fourteen generations of American Soldiers whose leadership, character, and selfless sacrifice have forged and safeguarded our nation for over two centuries. A great Army deserves a great Museum. To understand ourselves, our country, and our culture, we can learn much from our Army and its Soldiers, past and present. Their history is our history, told from a unique and remarkable perspective. Regardless of the mission—whether combat, peacekeeping, or nation-building—Soldiers’ stories exemplify the indomitable spirit that has so clearly defined the American character since 1775. It is now time to build the National Museum of the United States Army.
I wish US soldiers were well treated when they return home. But it is not what is happening. I really wish this was a historical foundation that also had nothing new to add other than past war pieces. Also a dream.
