MacArthur Memorial Raising Money for Expansion

MacArthur Memorial Raising Money for Expansion

We can never forget one of America’s greatest general, Douglas MacArthur.

Recently, the General Douglas MacArthur Foundation has raised nearly $1 million for its “5 Star Campaign” to modernize and expand the MacArthur Memorial in Norfolk, Va.

The proposed $4.5 million expansion will triple the changing exhibit space, add a multi-media theater, and provide a great hall for visitor orientation.

Contributions to the 5 Star Campaign are being matched by the City of Norfolk up to a total of $2 million.

The 5 Star Campaign “will enhance and transform the visitor experience at the MacArthur Memorial for 21st Century visitors while preserving and presenting General MacArthur’s enduring values of Duty, Honor, and Country,” a release from the General Douglas MacArthur Foundation states.

MacArthur, who died in 1964, served in World War I and later as Supreme Allied Commander in the Pacific theatre during World War II. He oversaw the rebuilding of Japan and commanded United Nations forces during the Korean War.

His Memorial’s library contains MacArthur’s 5,000 books, more than 2 million documents and maps, and some 150,000 photographs.

Those wanting to contribute to the 5 Star Campaign can go online to MacArthur Memorial - The City of Norfolk, VA.
