CALIBRE Systems, Inc., a leading provider of management consulting and technology services to the U.S. Army and other defense and civil markets, recently upgraded their gift to the National Museum of the United States Army to $100,000.
After attending a Museum-related event in June, CALIBRE leadership expressed an interest in increasing their original $50,000 gift in order to sponsor an exhibit. “CALIBRE has been a good friend of the Museum,” said Robert Anderson, the Capital Campaign’s Director of Corporate Relations.
“They recognized we are moving closer to breaking ground and that this was a good time to make an additional gift, expand their presence in the Museum, and help push the overall Museum project forward.”
An employee-owned company employing many Army veterans, CALIBRE will sponsor the “Soldier’s Stories: American Revolution” exhibit in the Museum’s Founding the Nation gallery, which invites visitors to examine America’s roots from a new and intriguing perspective – the origins and foundation of the American Army. Through a creative media piece, the CALIBRE-sponsored exhibit will present the personal stories and experiences of five American Soldiers who served during the Revolution, each providing a unique viewpoint of the Soldier’s experience.
“CALIBRE’s recent gift demonstrates their commitment to preserving the Army’s history and heritage,” remarked Campaign Executive Director, MG John P. Herrling (USA-Ret.). “These stories from the American Revolution are at the heart of the National Army Museum, and we depend on supporters such as CALIBRE to make it possible for the Army’s story to be shared with future generations of Americans.”
