THE MUSEUM OF THE AMERICAN MILITARY FAMILY
Tijeras, NM , New Mexico Tel: (505) 504-6830
We are the Museum of the American Military Family, the only one of its kind.
*** We recognize and honor the wives and husbands, the parents and grandparents, the sons and daughters who stand behind our soldiers, sailors, airmen, and coast guard.
*** We want to tell the stories of military families, their pride, their sacrifices, their special challenges.
*** We want to inspire young people to learn about and to uphold the ideals of national service.
*** We want to call attention the very special kinds of people who since the 17th Century till now have seen members of their family sent off to far away and dangerous places to protect America.
*** We want the general public to understand that behind every man or woman in uniform, there are “invisible people” behind them – wives and mothers, fathers and brothers, sisters and children.
