National Veterans Memorial & Museum (NVMM)
There are almost 22 million living veterans throughout the United States, from our Greatest Generation to our recent heroes coming home from Afghanistan and Iraq.
And yet, there is no single monument or museum dedicated to the Veteran’s experience. There are institutions that focus on specific conflicts or branches of service, but there hasn’t been a place for us all to join together to celebrate and honor the sacrifice of all of our veterans, past and present…until now.
The National Veterans Memorial and Museum is currently under construction in Columbus, Ohio, with an anticipated grand opening in Summer 2018.
In Memoriam: John Glenn
We join the country in mourning the loss of Senator John Glenn and offer our sincere condolences to his family. "The world lost a hero today, and I lost a friend. I will forever treasure Senator John Glenn for his mentorship and guidance. He lived a life worth emulating and left a legacy worth remembering. The National Veterans Memorial & Museum began as his inspiration, and we will continue this important work in his honor and in recognition of all the patriots who have served and continue to serve our country," said Guy V. Worley, President/CEO of the Columbus Downtown Development Corporation, the organization leading the design, construction and fundraising of NVMM.
