44: An Exhibit of the Spoken Word on the 75th Anniversary of World War II
The National Museum of the United States Army is creating an online video exhibit to help bring the voices of World War II Soldiers to life seventy-five years later: 44: An Exhibit of the Spoken Word on the 75th Anniversary of World War II.
We need your help.
The Museum is looking for Soldiers’ letters from the year 1944. The letters can be from Europe, the Pacific, the China-India-Burma area, the Mediterranean, or anywhere else in the world, including duty right here in the U.S. The Soldier can be from any branch of duty and can include anyone from fighter pilot to cook and those still in training.
44 letters will be selected for filming with student actors “portraying” the voices of the Soldiers. A video letter will be posted on Youtube every 8-9 days over the course of 2019, leading up to the grand opening of the National Museum of the U.S. Army.
This is your opportunity to have your family and fellow service members be a part of this early exhibit.
Please submit a clear copy of your letter by December 15, 2018 (however, NMUSA will accept them until January 15, 2019.) Do not send the actual letter. Please include information about the Soldier, their service in WWII, or a photo, if available. Email is the preferred method to send your materials, but USPS is also an option.
