ARRT-Richmond Tours the US Army Quartermaster Museum

Woven insignia in the entrance.
Our stalwart group with Laura Baghetti "front and center."

Twelve members of our round table toured the U.S. Army Quartermaster Museum at Fort Lee, VA on October 16, 2013. Laura Baghetti led us on an informative and fun tour of their facility and described the museum as a "hidden gem"--is she ever right! Thank you, Laura!

In addition to learning about the mission of the quartermasters throughout history, we were able to view some artifacts not generally available to the public:

Some of the various uniform artifacts.

More artifacts, including Gen. Eisenhower's uniform jacket and a drum used at the funeral of J. F. Kennedy.

"Ice Creepers" drew the interest of all.

We highly recommend a visit . . . and take a friend!
