Boeing will sponsor the Soldier’s Story Gallery, a dramatic entry experience to the National Army Museum designed to create an instant connection between Museum visitors and the Soldiers whose stories will be told in a larger-than-life fashion.

“I want to thank Boeing for their early commitment to the National Army Museum, and take this opportunity to recognize that Boeing was the first donor AHF welcomed into the Campaign’s elite Commander-in-Chief’s Circle of Distinction reserved for donors of $5 million or more,” remarked Army Historical Foundation Board President, General William W. Hartzog, (USA-Ret.).

Hartzog added that Boeing has been a great supporter of the National Army Museum, creatively expanding their sponsorship through their own initiatives and sponsoring the Soldiers’ Stories Video Gallery, an online video series featuring interviews with Army veterans to help preserve and promote Army history through first-hand accounts of those who served.
