Combat Art Gallery Opening at National Museum of the Marine Corps

(Finally!)

Mark down Sunday, 9 July, on your calendars:

On July 9, 2017, the National Museum of the Marine Corps will open a new Marine Corps Combat Art Gallery. The gallery will feature changing exhibitions of the Museum’s combat art collection.

The first exhibition in the gallery, Honor, Courage, Commitment: Marine Corps Art, 1975-2015, honors Marines who have served in the Corps during the last 40 years and echoes the core values of the Marine Corps: honor, courage, and commitment. One hundred works of art by 22 artist[s] are divided among three themes.

The exhibit will be on display until April 2018. Come visit!

Admission to the Museum and parking are FREE!

I expect there will be some great works on display. You really should go see it; it’s worth the drive to get there.

A 1989 graduate of the Virginia Military Institute, he is a retired artillery officer in the United States Marine Corps, with time in both the active and reserve sides. He served in Iraq in 2004, and in Afghanistan in 2009-2010. He joined the magnificent OPFOR.com as a guest blogger from the now defunct but never uninteresting Rule 308, where he denounced gun control and other aspects of tyranny, and proclaimed the greatness of the United States.
