Support the Currahee Military Museum!
For those of you have traveled with us on our Original Band of Brothers® Tour, as well as fans of Stephen Ambrose’s epic book, Band of Brothers and the miniseries of the same name, we wanted to let you that the home of these great American heroes, Currahee Military Museum at Camp Toccoa in Georgia, needs your help.
On our Original Band of Brothers® Tour, we begin where the men of Easy Company began—at the training camp in Toccoa, Georgia. We visit the train station where recruits for the 506th first arrived, now the Currahee Military Museum. After viewing artifacts and memorabilia from Camp Toccoa, we travel to the site of the camp and then proceed up Mount Currahee, the 1,000 ft. mountain that the men of the 506th ran daily for training.
The Currahee Military Museum is temporarily closed due to the recent travel restrictions in response to COVID-19 as well as to minimize the risks to staff, volunteers, visitors from around the world and their families. All of this is now in jeopardy.
The museum is a 501C3 non-profit organization. It is solely dependent on visitors, admissions, membership dues, gift shop sales and donations to continue its operations and to preserve its collection of artifacts and memorabilia. Not only has the museum lost significant revenue from the closure, but with travel restrictions in place it will take the museum longer as a small business to “bounce back” from this economic decline.
Your support is vital during this time, and you can help by donating or becoming a member.
Thank you in advance for helping to preserve the Legacy of Leadership of the Band of Brothers by supporting Currahee Military Museum!
