CCR members are invited to gear up for a new Club event, a cruise to the National Museum of the Marine Corps, located in Triangle, VA.  The Museum has been lauded internationally for efforts expended to depict the Corps both as an institution and as a reality since its birth in 1775.  Admission to the Museum is free and there is no cost for parking.  Cameras are welcomed and veteran wear (of all services!) is encouraged.  Many examples of aircraft, armor, and weaponry of the periods are displayed with detailed information about their uses and capabilities.  The Combat Art Gallery contains more than 9000 art works portraying the Marine experience in times of war and peace.  The Medal of Honor Theater features a signature film, We, The Marines, which immerses viewers in the experience of being a Marine (tickets are $5 at the box office).  Food and drink are available on the second floor in the Devil Dog Diner or in Tun Tavern.  A Museum store with gifts and souvenirs  is on the first floor.

 

DETAILS:  We will meet at 8:00 am in the parking lot behind the Chick-fil-A restaurant located at 10176 Brook Rd & Magnolia Ridge Rd in the VA Center Marketplace (that's on SR 1 just north of its intersection with I-295).  At 8:15, we'll do a roll call, sell some 50/50 tickets, and have a drivers' meeting before departing NLT 8:30.  The drive is about 75 miles.  Please remember to wear your Nametag and bring your Club radio if you have one.  The cruise is rain or shine so if you bring your OTC, you'll just need to bring up the rear.  UNCLE SAM WANTS YOU to join us!
