National Museum of the Marine Corps Visit

Over the Thanksgiving holiday, the family and I went to Triangle, Virginia to check out the U.S. Marine Corps Museum.  As always, it was a very humbling experience and it reminds us that our freedoms are not to be taken lightly. 

There have been a few additions since the last time we visited the museum, which was back in 2014.  For example, they have added a movie theater, education classrooms, and the Never Forget section.  One of the new additionss had an amazing statue that featured a U.S. Marine. The statue showcased everything it is to be a Marine attached to it.  Hard to describe, but you can see from the picture below, it is very impressive. The attention to detail of every little figurine on the sculpture is amazing.

We also saw the newly added exhibits No Better Friend, Terror Strikes (9/11 Tribute), and the extension of the Legacy Walk.  More sections are expected to be opened up around 2023-2025, one of which will feature a full-size F-18 Hornet.  Definitely looking forward to that.

Directly off of I-95 near Quantico, Virginia, the National Museum of the Marine Corps is definitely worth visiting if you are in the area.
