Army Historical Foundation US - you can donate if you want

Contribute to the National Army Museum
Become a Founding Sponsor of the National Museum of the United States Army. 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. Uncle SamThe U.S. Army is the only service branch that does not have a central museum to preserve, display and interpret its heritage. More than 228 years of Army history are in danger of being lost. Those who have worn the uniform of the U.S. Army deserve a place of honor that tells their story and the story of the great battles they fought, and how they helped to shape the nation. Our nation's heritage is one of freedom—an inalienable right that was not given to our people, but won with great effort. The U.S. Army's fight for freedom must be told to the American public and passed on to future generations. How will my contribution be used? The U.S. Army estimate that it will need to raise over $200 million in private contributions to finance the design and construction of the Museum, as well as to create the exhibits and displays that will tell the story of the U.S. Army.
Your name and service history (or that of your loved one) will be prominently displayed in the Registry of the American Soldier.

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.
Let's dream again and try to value the life of these soldiers.

Wow!
Thank you Herrad.
I like your blog too. I love the collection of painting, photographies... the whole private museum you created at your blog.
I have already copied your Keith Harring's collection and I am thinking about publishing your Gauguin's too.
You did a great choice and it's been a long time I want to make a post about him.
Some I have already published but not a whole post.
Thank you for the award.
