The Friends of the Fort Lewis Military Museum were organized in 1973 to provide volunteers, monetary assistance, and encouragement for the Lewis Army Museum. The Friends believe that the story of our Soldiers, their families, and supporters must be preserved to educate and inspire future generations of Americans. The Friends are a non-profit organization dedicated to keeping the history of the United States Army alive by supporting the Lewis Army Museum and its programs. The Friends membership includes active duty and retired military personnel as well as patriotic citizens from all walks of life. Friends receive a quarterly newsletter, a discount at our gift shop, and the opportunity to participate in meetings and programs. Please help us to promote an appreciation and awareness of our priceless military heritage by becoming a Friend.
