How can YOU help preserve our veterans history?

    Each day more and more of our veterans are passing away. The last veteran from World War I passed away in February 2011; our World War II veterans are dying at the rate of approximately 1,000 a day. For many younger people, conflicts as recent as Vietnam seem to be "old war movies". Unfortunately, many times when a veteran dies all of his or her history dies with them - we want to bring to life the stories of our veterans and provide a tangible link to them.

    Donations ensure our continued growth, and preservation of our veteran's stories.

    What types of things can you donate?

  • Uniforms
  • Insignias
  • Medals
  • Photographs
  • Captured enemy trophies
  • Anything that will help tell our veteran's stories, especially those from Ohio.

    (All donors are credited on the museum's web site.)

    Nothing is too small or insignificant. We are a 501c3 tax-exempt organization and donations are tax deductible to the limit allowed by the Internal Revenue Service.

    We can also use items that you feel may be too damaged or worn to restore. Artifacts may be used to support our educational programs such as Operation FOOTLOCKER (a virtual field trip) and the Speakers Bureau.
