An added bonus will be lectures outlining battles and their strategies, political aspects of wars, and an expert analysis of all facets of a West Point educational and military experience from a parent perspective.
Love of country plus gratitude to those who served proudly equals the museum’s theme for all ages, both young and old.
The Museum proudly supports Jeff Miller's Blue Ridge Honor Flight. On October 6th, five members of the Museum Board traveled to Washington D.C. with the Honor Flight. Curtiss Poteat, Clark Murray, and Andy "Gunny" Boyko are Vietnam Veterans and Curator Emmett Casciato along with Treasurer Michel Johns Robertson were Guardians. Watch the "Welcome Home" video above to see how these heroes were greeted at the airport after the flight.

The Museum is made possible by contributions by supporters like you!
The purpose of this military museum is to provide an avenue for people to appreciate and honor the men and women who served so bravely in our Armed Forces.
Some examples of what the museum will feature include one-of-a kind artifacts, uniforms, weaponry, original newspapers, personal letters, etc.
All of these special items and more weave the great and proud stories of World War I, World War II, Korea, The Cold War, Vietnam, Iraq, and Afghanistan.
They display and help us empathize with the wonder, but also the danger of our involvement in these wars, and the unique sacrifice of our military men and women!
When looking for a meaningful way to honor a family member or friend that served in the Military, please consider an Honor Wall Plaque. Located in the center hallway of the WNC Military History Museum, four large panels containing these permanent tributes to our American heroes are the first exhibit visitors see when entering the museum.
Three inch by six inch golden plaques are available for one hundred dollars and can be etched with up to forty five letters of your choice. Four inch by eight inch golden plaques are also available for two hundred dollars and can be etched with up to fifty letters.
All moneys collected by the sale of plaques are used to fund the Museum so support the cause and honor a hero with this glorious tribute.
