USAHEC's 2013 Army Heritage Day Cancelled Due to Budget Constraints

USAHEC’s 2013 Army Heritage Day Cancelled Due to Budget Constraints

The U.S. Army Heritage and Education Center team is announcing the cancellation of the 2013 Army Heritage Days. The USAHEC’s most popular annual event, scheduled this year for the 18th and 19th of May, regularly attracted over 10,000 visitors. Budgetary restrictions in the Department of Defense and the Department of the Army have forced constraints on events and outreach activities. The USAHEC team is grateful for all of the support the public shows, and we are excited to start planning for the 2014 Army Heritage Days soon.

The USAHEC will continue with planning for other smaller events, and the team encourages everyone to check our website often. Lectures, workshops, and living historian meet-and-greets are just some of this summer’s planned activities. The USAHEC also features the Army Heritage Trail, a one mile path with numerous macro-exhibits representing every era of U.S. Army history. Inside, “The Soldier Experience” gallery rounds off a series of exhibits complete with a tank from World War I! As always, the Café Cumberland and the Army Heritage Foundation Museum Store are available, as well.
Parking and visiting the USAHEC facilities is free. For directions to the USAHEC and information about upcoming events and exhibits, please visit www.usahec.org . For questions, please call: 717-245-3972.
