Military Museum Announces major fundraising boost

The Friends of the New York State Military Museum's fundraising efforts received a big boost recently with significant grants from local foundations' and a prominent area business to support the NYS Military Museum's development of a major new exhibition on the Korean and Vietnam Wars.

Stewart's Shops, which donates $7.5 million annually to local charities, and the Saratoga Foundation each awarded the Friends $10,000 while the Alfred Z. Solomon Charitable Trust presented the Friends a check for $20,000.00.  The Friends will use these funds to help pay for installation expenses such as exhibit cases and graphics as well as to support the development of associated educational programming and interactive video kiosks featuring oral histories from New York State veterans.

"We are grateful for these generous awards, so we can support the Military Museum's exhibit on Korea and Vietnam and help to honor the service and sacrifice of all of our nation's brave men and women who participated in these conflicts," said David Wallingford, President of the Friends and a Vietnam War veteran.

Entitled "Hot Spots in the Cold War:  Korean and Vietnam," the exhibition is scheduled to open in the late spring or summer of 2017.
