Welcome to The Banner, a periodic newsletter published and distributed by The Friends of the Fort Lewis Military Museum, which is devoted to a history of the United States Army in the Pacific Northwest. Here you will find the most recently published issue and copies dating back to 2015.

Newsletter Information

In addition to the major features, each issue has an article by the President of the Board of Advisors and an update on museum activities from the Museum Curator. Information about member meeting programs is also included.

Each issue contains:

1. Articles of historical interest about Military in the PNW, Fort Lewis and JBLM.

2. Original artwork by Mr. Alan Archambault, former curator of the Museum.

3. Photos from the Museum Collection.

We continually seek articles and photos for publication in future issues, so we welcome your participation in preserving the history of the Army in the Pacific Northwest, especially Washington.
