Triangle, VA - Just as the National Museum of the Marine Corps has some mysteries within its galleries, many people have "mysterious" military relics that may have a link to the Marine Corps. On November 6 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. those mysteries may be solved at the Museum's Marine Corps History Day.
This history day is an opportunity for visitors to find out more about those old uniforms, medals, photo albums, or other items they've held onto for years that may have a Marine Corps connection. Marine Corps curators, historians and archivists will be on hand to provide historical and preservation information for the items.
