Ceremonial Groundbreaking Update

The Department of the Army has notified Army Historical Foundation (AHF) officials that delays could result if the groundbreaking ceremony for the National Museum of the United States Army at the Fort Belvoir site occurs before conclusion of an ongoing Supplemental Environmental Assessment (SEA). Completion of the SEA is now estimated for the 1st quarter of calendar year 2016.  As a result, AHF officials have decided to postpone the planned December 2, 2015 groundbreaking ceremony until the SEA is completed. The postponement of the ceremonial groundbreaking should not affect the current timeline for opening the Museum in June 2019.
