  • The Friends of the 384th in the  UK  will undertake the next steps to establish the Museum. While volunteers have achieved excellent progress at little cost, some next steps will have a price tag, necessitating future fundraising drives. Each drive will fund a specific milestone, such as building a Nissen Hut, or creating a parking lot. This website and your visit here are one way of honoring the sacrifice of those who served in the 384th. Will you help honor those brave men by contributing as well? Project details here.
