Become a Volunteer Today!

The Foundation began in 1989 with a group of dedicated and visionary volunteers who believed the story of Army Medicine deserved a world-class Museum to showcase its accomplishments and history.  After decades of success, the Foundation is constantly renewed and continues to advance its goals by new members willing to serve as volunteers.  There are a wide variety of volunteer opportunities at both the Museum and the Museum Foundation.  Below is a just a sampling of these positions.
