The Friends of the Fort Lewis Military Museum was 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 is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization also registered in Washington State. The Friends is dedicated to keeping the history of the United States Army in the Pacific Northwest alive by supporting the Lewis Army Museum and its programs; membership includes active duty and retired military personnel as well as patriotic citizens from all walks of life. Members receive a quarterly newsletter, a discount at our gift shop, and the opportunity to participate in meetings and programs as well as volunteer at the museum. Help us promote an appreciation and awareness of our priceless military heritage by becoming a Friend. See the Membership page for more information and a membership application.
