Drivers Still Needed for American Warrior Event

As a kickoff to the Memorial Day weekend and the start of the Forum Cruise In, the American Warrior Recognition starts the Thursday activities. 

The Memorial Day weekend is a significantly appropriate time to thank our military members and recognize their service to the United States and the world.  Volunteers will be asked to caravan from the NCM to either Ft. Campbell or Ft. Knox, pick up a Wounded Warrior and transport them back to the NCM for a day of tours of the Museum and the Assembly Plant along with a luncheon before returning the warriors to their respective bases.  Drivers and their guests along with the warriors with their guests will enjoy a complementary lunch as part of the day’s activities.

Volunteers can register as part of the Forum activities, or as part of the Warrior activities.

This week's trivia question was: We will soon be displaying Roy Orbison's Corvette... what year is his car?

Congratulations to Jim Klug of Menomonie, WI! He correctly identified the Corvette as a 1967 and scored a t-shirt and free passes to the Museum!

2011 Supersonic Blue Coupe

Friday, April 29, 2011 at 3:15pm CT.

Tickets are $300 and the raffle is limited to 500 tickets.


With all the makings of a Hollywood drama, love story and action film, “The Quest” documents the incredible story of the first Corvette to win its class at the famous track in Le Mans France in 1960. Of course the car couldn't have done it alone – “The Quest” tells the untold tale of the driver and the man who dreamed to take the car back to France for the 50th anniversary of the win but who lost his life early to a rare disease called Amyloidosis.

For one night only, the Chip Miller Charitable Foundation (CMCF) is premiering the heartwarming documentary created by the award-winning filmmaker Michael Brown. The movie will show on Friday, May 6th at 7:30 p.m. at the Carlisle Theatre, 44 West High Street in downtown Carlisle, Pennsylvania. All proceeds from the tickets will benefit the Foundation.

The deadline to purchase tickets is tomorrow, Friday, April 29. Click here for more information.
