INSPIRING STORY OF SERVICE

Col. Gregory Allen, U.S. Army (Retired), shares how the Special Forces motto, “De Opresso Liber,” meaning “To free the oppressed,” became a way of life for him after nearly leaving the Army. Fast forward past deployments around the world and 11 years in the National Guard, and Allen is still serving -- helping Veterans find jobs and start businesses while teaching leadership skills at his former high school.

Latest Virtual Event

We welcomed Col. Harold Brown (Retired), one of the famed Tuskegee Airmen, for our February Virtual Rally Point. Now in his 90s, Brown told his mother when he was in the sixth grade during segregation that he would become a military fighter pilot. In 1944 at age 19 he completed flight training at the Tuskegee Institute and graduated with his wings and a commission as a 2nd Lieutenant. Col. Brown will share his experience as a member of the Red Tailed Angels escorting bombers over Europe as well as being shot down and held as a POW in Germany.

The National Veterans Memorial and Museum was created for a unique and specific purpose: to preserve, share and celebrate the personal experiences of our nation’s Veterans. Past and present. From all branches of service. And from all eras of conflict and peacetime service.

Their stories shaped a nation. Our freedom is their legacy. Share in the celebration, and be inspired by the courage of those who served.

We are more than a museum. We are the New Home of the Brave.
