As another year comes to a close, I wanted to thank all the volunteers that have made it possible for us to put on another open house. It is their tireless dedication to the collection, museum and all those who have served and continue to serve that make it possible to bring NMAW to the public. As the operations manager of Virginia Museum of Military Vehicles I have the honor to work alongside this dedicated group of people on a daily basis and have the utmost respect for their dedication and positive attitude.
We have now winterized the collection and have moved all our work inside the shops for the cold season that is upon us. The restorations, repairs and maintenance will continue in the heated shops until once again we can open the doors to warmer weather. The volunteers still come to help out throughout the winter and with the average restoration taking at least 2000 man hours to complete, help is always needed. We not only are involved in the restoration but must maintain and repair when needed the 100 or so vehicles in the collection. We are always looking for volunteers to help with events as well as day to day museum tasks. Please feel free to contact me if you would like to be involved in preserving this collection for future generations.
