(April 30, 2018) In recognizing the tremendous sacrifice and service of our soldiers, Redstone Federal Credit Union has donated $50,000 toward the National Museum of the United States Army.
The national museum will be a lasting tribute to the American Soldier and will educate the public on the many contributions made by the men and women of the Army.
The museum will sit on 84 acres at Fort Belvoir, Va., and will display more than 15,000 pieces of the Army’s art collection and 30,000 artifacts, documents and images. Visitors will engage through its first-person soldier stories, interactive simulations, and more. It is expected to open in April 2019.
Redstone Federal Credit Union was born on an Army base – Redstone Arsenal – in 1951, to serve the soldiers and the Department of Defense staff, said Joseph Newberry, President and CEO of Redstone Federal Credit Union.
“We are excited to support the National Museum of the US Army,‘’ said Newberry. “It is long overdue and is needed to show this country’s appreciation, reverence and tribute to the soldiers who have fought and died for our country, ’’ he said.
The Credit Union joins with other donors to turn this dream into a reality, Newberry said.
