A gem in New­burg

Maryland Independent - - Community Forum - Sue Novotny, Waldorf

My hus­band and I re­cently vis­ited a lit­tle known South­ern Mary­land trea­sure. The Mary­land Vet­er­ans Mu­seum at Pa­triot Park is an im­pres­sive non­profit or­ga­ni­za­tion that honors vet­er­ans from the Rev­o­lu­tion­ary War to Afghanistan. It is well or­ga­nized and dis­plays an as­sort­ment of in­ter­est­ing mem­o­ra­bilia, most of it do­nated by ser­vice­men or their fam­i­lies. Var­i­ous events such as car shows and re-en­act­ments are hosted by the mu­seum. The mu­seum has not been widely pub­li­cized so I am shar­ing our ex­pe­ri­ence to en­cour­age oth­ers to check it out. It’s well worth the trip to New­burg at 11000 Crain High­way just south of La Plata. And cer­tainly the Mary­land In­de­pen­dent should fea­ture a story about the mu­seum and its ac­com­plish­ments.
