Museum Asking for World War II Artifacts

NGAUS Washington Report

(Nov. 5, 2013) The National Guard Educational Foundation is seeking artifacts related to the National Guard from the World War II era. The items will be part of NGEF’s planned renovation of the gallery dedicated to that war in the National Guard Memorial Museum.

The museum is hoping to receive a variety of items, such as uniforms, equipment, mementos, documents and photos that will allow the museum to better tell the story of the Guard’s involvement in the war, said Amelia Meyer, the museum curator.

“We encourage any Guard veterans, relatives of Guardsmen who served during the war, collectors and others to contact us regarding donations to the museum,” Meyer said. “We envision a gallery that encapsulates the Guard’s importance to the combat effort abroad and that also recognizes the Guard’s overall contributions to the Allied victory.”

Meyer can be contacted at amelia.meyer@ngaus.org. More information about the National Guard Memorial Museum can be found at www.ngef.org.
