Sacrifice & Service: The American Military Family is on Exhibit in Los Alamos through January 2, 2015Posted: December 6, 2014
On December 4, 2014, Sacrifice & Service: The American Military Family opened at the Mesa Public Library in Los Alamos, New Mexico. It was the third venue for the exhibit, which debuted in Albuquerque on Memorial Day, traveled to the Lea County Museum in October and November, and will spend December in Los Alamos.
On December 1, the exhibit was delivered by Jim Harris, Lea County Museum Director, who drove the exhibit up from Lovington . On December 3, MAMF Director Circe, and board members Joan and Ole set up the exhibit, along with Mesa Public Library personnel.
It seemed a near impossible task to have everything ready for the December 4 opening, but it came together.
Between the MAMF team, Katy, the library director and and Keith, from Los Alamos County, the exhibit came together mid-morning on the 4th. The Albuquerque Journal sent a photographer to take some photos to accompany an article slated to run in mid-December.
Despite pouring rain and near freezing conditions, visitors to the opening reception were enthusiastic about Sacrifice & Service: the American Military Family.
Los Alamos historian and author Nancy Bartlit presented Circe with a copy of her book, Silent Voices of World War II.
The Museum of the American Military Family is pleased and honored to have been asked to share the story of America’s military families at Los Alamos. To read more about Nancy’s work, click here:
