Historian at National Museum of the United States Marine Corps shares touching stories

May 30, 2021

A visit with the United States Marine Corps Historian Mike Miller at the National Museum of the United States Marine Corps located in Triangle, Virginia, adjacent to Quantico Marina Corps base. The National Museum of the Marine Corps is a lasting tribute to U.S. Marines--past, present, and future.

Situated on a 135-acre site adjacent to Marine Corps Base Quantico, Virginia under the command of Marine Corps University, the Museum's soaring design evokes the image of the flag-raisers of Iwo Jima and beckons visitors to this 120,000-square-foot structure.

World-class interactive exhibits using the most innovative technology surround visitors with irreplaceable artifacts and immerse them in the sights and sounds of Marines in action.
