WE THE PEOPLE: PORTRAITS OF VETERANS IN AMERICA

Artist Mary Whyte's series of 50 moving watercolor portraits of Veterans debuts September 18. The portraits began as an effort to paint the face of America and turned into an all-consuming mission to uphold and honor the hidden heroes of our country. Each painting illustrates a Veteran’s reintegration back into society and the workforce after their military service. Presented at the museum through the generosity of Big Lots.

NEWS

Insights from our President and CEO

Military service is the best on-the-job leadership training in the world. Veterans bring so much to the workplace, but it is important to help them invest in professional development to continue to grow and thrive in their civilian careers.

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.
