Give Them What They Need

October 8, 2015

Opens October 8th at 4:45 PM Closes December 23rd at 4:00 PM

The “Give Them What They Need” exhibit, which accompanies the Marshall Legacy Series sequence “Taking Care of the Troops” will feature uniforms, standard issue supplies and rations, and furnishings the average soldier would have had.

Items featured include Chaplain Corps artifacts from the Alvin E. Houser Collection and items made and worn by the American Red Cross.

From the archive, we will have Signal Corps photos of scenes involving supplies, the Red Cross, and the USO.

The Carebox Project of Rockbridge will have a photograph display of the troops they have “taken care of” throughout the past several years.
