Save The Flying Leatherneck Aviation Museum

After more than 20 years of sharing the history of Marine Corps Aviation, the Marine Corps ordered the Flying Leatherneck Aviation Museum to close to the public on March 28, 2021.

We have heard from very demoralized veterans who do not want our Marine Corps aviation history forgotten.  But there is reason for optimism because efforts are underway to keep the museum collection together and to relocate it to a new facility.  But without any guarantees additional public support remains crucial and the clock is ticking. Please don't let this history and the sacrifices of these brave men and women be forgotten. Sign the petition and share it far and wide.

Every single signature is another reminder to these veterans that we have not forgotten them or their sacrifices.

Since the closure there has been a lot of progress made to save this museum by relocating it.  Please check out the Flying Leatherneck Historical Foundation website  to see how you can support this effort.

Thank you and Semper Fi!

Here is what some of our youngest supporters have to say about this museum:

The funds raised were used to post a billboard to raise awareness and it seems likely that this had an impact on the Marine Corps which ordered that all Marine Corps aircraft at the museum remain in place for an additional 6 months while the Flying Leatherneck Historical Foundation works out the details of a relocation plan.  Thank you to everyone for your generous support: it made a difference!
