Home is Where the Military Sends You...
What better monument/memorial to Military Families than a house?


We have completed phase one of the memorial--please help us raise the rest of the money needed to put in lights, audio (to play Reville, Retreat and Taps)  and an antiglare window coating--we still need a little over $1,200 to complete our unique tribute...This house symbolises those who served alongside America's heros--it is a sweet and long deserved "thank you" to the countless men, women and children who "keep the home fires burning"

Our tribute to  generations of military families is  a small house with five window displays--one each honoring  parents, spouses, children, service members  and  veterans--furnished with uniforms,  artifacts, photos and mementoes donated by military family members from all branches and generations.

It is located at National Guard Bataan Museum in Santa Fe. It was dedicated on May 13, 2017, just in time for Mother's Day.

ABOUT US:


Who tells the stories of America's military family better than America's military families?

The Museum of the American Military Family & Learning Center honors and showcases the stories of almost 400 years of American Military Family history through the words, voices and perspectives of the American Military Family.

We will acknowlege all donors on a special sign on the memorial itself.

We are a 501c3 non-profit museum created and run by volunteers; we count on the support of individuals to help us preserve and showcase the unique cultural heritage of the American Military Family. We’d really appreciate your support!

This is the Military Brats window-we'd like to do an antiglare treatment on the windows so it's easier to see inside.
