On 8 September 2017, General Gordon R. Sullivan, Chairman of the Army Historical Foundation Board of Directors and the U.S Army’s 32nd Chief of Staff visited the VAFCC Museum. The Army Historical Foundation is establishing The National Museum of the United States Army on over 80 acres at Fort Belvoir, VA, less than 30 minutes south of our nation’s capital in Washington, D.C.
General Sullivan met with members of the Veteran Association of the First Corps of Cadets to promote prospects of collaboration with the Massachusetts National Guard in order to tell the story of the Citizen Soldier from 1636 to the present in The National Museum of the United States Army. The museum will serve as the capstone of the Army Museum Enterprise, provide the only comprehensive portrayal of Army history and traditions, and celebrate the selfless service and sacrifice of over 30 million men and women who have worn the Army uniform.
