Thank you to WGME TV 13 in Portland, Maine for the story about our museum. The video is available on our web site here.
We have started a new section of the web site currently titled “Life After Captivity”.
We have added a new section containing books about POWs and prisons. Our first two books are available as PDF image files.
The Maine Military Museum has been honored with a hood and fender. Look for it at the races!
The museum will be open on Memorial Day, Monday, May 30, 2016 and will dedicate the new Vietnam War in-country section of the museum. All veterans and non-veterans are welcome to attend.
We are collecting our various POW exhibits on one page to help visitors find information and to better communicate the POW story. The museum’s POW collections are continuing to grow and we will continue to add to the online content.
We have published another Vietnamese propaganda film titled Farewell Uninvited Guests. The Vietnamese language film was created upon the release of the American prisoners.
We have just added the English language version of the Pilots in Pajamas video series. The video series is a set of propaganda films produced by the Communist Est Germans for distribution in multiple countries.
We have published the Vietnam War POW release videos through March 16, 1973. Still to come are the late 1973 release videos.
The museum has launched a fundraiser on Go Fund Me. We are seeking to raise the $15,000 needed for a new parking lot before opening for summer hours on Memorial Day. Please help if you can.
