What better monument/memorial to Military Families than a house?

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

It will be constructed at the National Guard Bataan Museum in Santa Fe. The first stages of construction will begin in early October 2016. We hope to finish it mid-to late November 2016. (Funding permitting)

As part of the monument/memorial, there will be metal dandelion sculptures, as well as elements from actual base housing units...

We already have a little over $4,000 towards this project
...please help us raise the rest--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"

ABOUT US:

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

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!

I could have spent this much at the bakery truck in Cramerton, but I am not in the old neighborhood anymore. However, I think our bond as military families cannot be broken by distance.
