A historic event is taking shape along the Potomac River just outside of Washington, DC. A magnificent state-of-the-art facility will be built as a national landmark to honor America's Soldiers, preserve the history of America's oldest military branch, and educate all Americans about the Army's role in our nation's development. It also will be that one special, central place where Soldiers and Army veterans and their families can reflect, remember, and enjoy the enduring spirit of Army camaraderie.
