A Night at the Museum | Events
The Fort Jackson Museum community welcomes you to join its Holiday Holdover Troops as they tour the post’s four museums and record video messages for loved ones at home Friday, Dec. 28, starting at 2 p.m. Nearly 170 Soldiers from Basic Combat Training will be there.
The event, called, “A Night at the Museum,” cumulates with a viewing of the film after which it was named at the Army Chaplain School’s Fox Lab at 7 p.m. There, Soldiers will be treated to a catered barbecue dinner.
This event, which is sponsored by the USO, is catered specifically to the troops who couldn’t go home during Victory Block Leave, as a way to boost morale during the Holiday season.
At each of the museums volunteer re-enactors will portray Soldiers from different military engagements in our country’s history. At the movie’s showing, there will also be volunteers dressed as characters from the movie.
The event will provide these troops with a fun, casual and relaxing atmosphere and allow the troops to decompress after training. With the help of donors and volunteers, these troops will feel at home and know they have not been forgotten.
