Video: Visit the National Museum of the Marine Corps

This world-class facility has both ancient relics from the Marines’ past and high-tech, interactive exhibits that educate and engage.

The National Museum of the Marine Corps,¬†Triangle, Virginia, is an amazing tribute to the “Leathernecks.” Through its exhibits and collection of stories and artifacts, it preserves the legacy of Marines against the shifting tides and sands of popular culture. Its real value is not as the curator to a glorious past, but as a gateway for young Americans to understand the role Marines play in our current and future national security force–and hopefully, it will be a gateway for young Americans to consider serving their country as Marines when their time comes.
