Fort Belvoir, Va.— The National Museum of the United States Army has curated a virtual exhibit, “Army Resolve: Looking Back at 9/11,” to mark the 20th anniversary of the attacks on September 11, 2001. The exhibit, created in partnership with Google Arts & Culture, is now live on the museum’s website at

https://www.thenmusa.org/exhibit/9-11-virtual-exhibit/.

“The terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 forever changed the course of history for our nation and the United States Army,” said Paul Morando, the Museum’s Chief Curator. “As our country pauses to remember and reflect on the 20th anniversary, our museum will help share the personal stories of the Soldiers impacted by those attacks, both in the immediate aftermath and the missions that followed.”

Visitors to the online exhibit are invited to explore personal accounts of Soldiers affected by the actions on September 11 through individual accounts, art, and artifacts. Due to the social and cultural elements associated with the Global War on Terrorism, elements of exhibit material may be considered sensitive for some visitors.

“It’s the Museum’s privilege to offer multiple ways for visitors to connect with the events of that fateful day,” added Morando. “Whether or not a visitor has a personal memory of that time, connecting with personal stories, art and artifacts are fundamental to preserving our nation’s history.”

More information about this online exhibit and virtual visitor opportunities may be found on the Museum’s event calendar at www.theNMUSA.org/events.
