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.
The Army Historical Foundation
The Army Historical Foundation is the designated official fundraising organization for the National Museum of the United States Army.
We were established in 1983 as a member-based, charitable 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. We seek to educate future Americans to fully appreciate the sacrifices that generations of American Soldiers have made to safeguard the freedoms of this Nation. Our funding helps to acquire and conserve Army historical art and artifacts, support Army history educational programs, research, and publication of historical materials on the American Soldier, and provide support and counsel to private and governmental organizations committed to the same goals.
