War Museum Announcement

By Greg L | 13 April 2010 | Prince William County | 24 Comments

Yes, I called it.  We’re getting a permanent home for the National Museum of Americans At War right here in Prince William County.  Until then, Chairman Corey Stewart has his own tank battalion to employ in the defense of Prince William County and its residents.  Well, not quite, but we can still dream, can’t we?

I enjoyed the speakers at the announcement today, and here’s a few pictures I took of the event.  This is going to be the best thing that’s ever happened to Dumfries.

Yes, you can laugh at things when armor is backing you up.

Armor also seems to help you gain a few political friends.

The museum will be at Dumfries Road and I-95, in the Neabsco District that John Jenkins currently represents, and should be open in about three years thanks to the help of the Hylton family who donated the property.

Delegate Richard Anderson, an Air Force veteran, had to be there…

…as did Army veteran Delegate Jackson Miller.

Folks, this is going to be a tremendous cultural and educational resource for the entire region and put Prince William County at the center of the map for military history in the United States.  On one end of the county, we’ll have Manassas National Battlefield Park, and on the other end we’ll have the National Marine Corps Heritage Museum and the National Museum of Americans at War, and in between we’re just littered with all sorts of spots significant to military history that date back even to the Revolutionary War.

Perhaps one of the most significant is the Old Courthouse in Manassas, where years after the Civil War hundreds of veterans of the battles of Manassas joined for a “peace jubilee” that was rare and rather unique not only for the Civil War, but for armed conflict of any kind.  Although I dislike that the radical left tries to hijack the meaning of this event for their own purposes, it remains a powerful piece of history that vastly broadens the scope of our heritage here in the county and adds meaning and purpose to the other events that have transpired here.  We fight when necessary not for peace, but for freedom and liberty, and once that freedom and liberty that we hold so dear is secured, our nation in a very unique way embraces our former foes and brings the blessings we have fought to defend to those we have vanquished.

For most of the nations our country has fought, being defeated in war by the United States is the best thing that has ever happened to them in the long run.  Here in Prince William County you can learn about every aspect of that progression from the first major battle of a war, right to the healing that happened after the battles ceased, and everything in between, from the time when muskets roared right to the time when huge armored vehicles swept the field.

We are blessed with one of the greatest pieces of God’s amazing earth ever to exist.

    How much did you Republican teabaggers pay Neil Armstrong to send a letter to the President blasting his decision to cancel NASA’s back-to-the-moon program?

    How much more do we need to spend on bombs, bullets, nuclear weapons, missles and useless NASA programs, and museums that showcase relics of death and destruction?

    We need social justice and monies to help those in need.

    President Obama is bringing peace to the world through his vision of all humanity.

    This museum is privately financed.

    Not EVERYTHING is paid for by the gov’t.

    FYI, it is at the intersection of I-95 and DALE BLVD., *NOT* Dumfries Road (which is Route 234.) This property is behind the K-MART on Dale Blvd.

    Deficit spending? By who, the private donors who are making this possible? Ever hear of “charity?” Apparently not, because in Socialism there is no such thing. There’s only force, and lethal force.

    Cripes, are liberals that utterly stupid that they’re going to rail against a privately-funded museum of American history simply because it honors the sacrifice of Americans who have answered the nation’s call to defend it? That’s really going to resonate well with the America populace. Honor selfless sacrifice, and you’re a neanderthal. Honor selfish indulgence, and you’re a hero, especially if some measure of depravity is involved.

    Liberalism is truly a mental disorder. I cannot repeat that enough.

    As much as I agree, you’ve GOT to be careful !!!

    Next thing you know, “they’ll” be having it declared a DISABILITY and start collecting Social Security for their “MENTAL DISORDER !!!”

    What a Great Day for Prince William County. This was great to see and hear the folks that are bringing this great sight to our County. And Thanks to the Hylton Family who donated the Land just off of I 95 and Dale Blvd.

    All these sights will draw tourist from all around the country. And Look at all the History within our County.

    The Project will not cost the taxpayer to buy the land or build the Museum and trails and many other amenaties.

    Some writers on here do not know the facts and do not bother to learn them.
    This is a great memorial and museum that our Children will visit and learn so much.

    Great going Prince William County.

    Originally they were trying to establish a location near the Manassas Airport. This would have been great since the owners of WWII planes could fly them in on special occassions. This has been in the planning stages for several years, as they had a building plan displayed at one of Allan Cors open houses. The museum name was also changed slightly.

    I’m confused. The link below takes you to the same site as the one above even though it sounds like a different museum. I guess they haven’t had time to update the site to reflect the changed location?

    Way to go Corey, other members of the BOCS, and the PWC Staff!! …and for those of you who don’t know, this was not an easy victory…Stafford Co wanted it as well.

    …and thanks to you too, Greg, for bringing the news to those who could not attend the press conference.

    I want to celebrate how I lost a war that made me get rid of my underage mistrisses down on the plantation and how we suckerd the poor into fighting for it.

    Greg, can you post about the MP embezzler, also I am very serious about wanting to start a petition to get rid of my CITY MP.
    It is over the top with all the issues and has to be scrapped.
    Can you post a link to materials one would need to get this done?

    This museum will be a draw and the tourist dollars spent in the upcoming years will be very welcome! It’s a good deal for PW County.

    It would be much better to sell these outdated war relics for scrap and use the proceeds to bolster the programs put on by the Prince William Conservation Alliance at the Merrimac Farm that showcase environmental protection and ways to fight global warming.

    Perhaps you Republican and apparant Democrat war-mongers need to get your combat boots out of storage and come to the Merrimac Farm and see the bluebells, perhaps that will set you at ease from showcasing killing machines.

    It is a given, that President Obama has pissed you robotic rifle boys off. That is good. We need a renewed essence of understanding in America. The poor are finally going to get their fair share of the goods from you. They’ve sacrificed just as much as all of you!

    Ray, what’s the matter with you? Does your trailer have a hole in the roof or something? Man, talk about a negative approach to life! No one wants war, but then no one wants to be taken over without a fight, or at least most other than you. Turning the other cheek only works once, and then what do you suggest we do?

    Ray, you need to advertise where you live, as I am sure that the doors to your home are wide open to feed any hungry, shelter any homeless and give all you have to any people passing by that would like what you have. So please…..post your address so that all can come into your open arms and your open home.

    Ray,

    How about you go slither away to France and find someone to surrender to? I’m sure there’s a place that enjoys having a milquetoast like you whine about how oppressed the proletariat is and would appreciate your efforts to help liberate them from their chains.

    Here in this country you are nothing but a pustule upon a boil, something we look at and recoil from, hoping there’s some medication that will relieve us from such an ailment. You are no countryman of mine. You are a hopeful slave eagerly in search of a slavemaster, begging to sell out your liberty so someone else can make you feel better about the tremendous blessings you enjoy by being here but obviously deserve not at all.

    I hear Belerus is nice this time of year. You should visit. I’ll pitch in a one-way non-transferable ticket for you.

    Just exactly WHAT have they “sacrificed,” Ray ???

    Getting up EARLY and going to SCHOOL (You know, that PESKY education) ???

    Getting up EARLY and going to WORK (You know, that PESKY job) ???

    There is something VERY SERIOUSLY WRONG (mentally) with someone who thinks that HONEST, HARD WORKING people should work all day long just so they can support DISHONEST people who are TOO STUPID to get an education and TOO LAZY to get a job !!!

    Is that what you want to do, Ray, bring back WELFARE for the LAZY, STUPID people ???

    The ones who lay around and MAKE MORE BABIES so they can qualify for more WELFARE money ???

    PAY people to do NOTHING, what a STUPID idea !!!

    Pretty much the DEFINITION of a LIBERAL, in a NUT shell !!!!!

    Just thought I’d drop in. Sorry I missed you in Prince William. I was in the back on the left with a laptop and video camera. Full recordings of Corey, Craig, Allan, and Mr Jenkins are up at UCV. Plus I got a few minutes of loading at the Tank Farm that morning.
