TC Marsh Military Museum Celebrated 5 Years

The TC Marsh Military Museum opened its doors to the community on November 10, 2017 for a fun night celebrating its 5 year anniversary. With close to 180 people visiting the museum, there were many opportunities for the Leadership Cadet Corps cadets to provide informational tours of the museum throughout the day and evening. Among our special guests were two wounded veterans from the Adaptive Training Foundation and a gold star father from Carry the Load. The museum's mission is to educate and engage the next generation of leaders by teaching them about the sacrifices and leadership of our US veterans past and present.
