The National Medal of Honor Museum of Military History's annualfFundraiser and Awards Banquet is set for 6 p.m. on March 6 in the Roosevelt Room of the Chattanooga Choo Choo Hotel, 1400 Market St.
Author John O’Malley of Birmingham will be the guest speaker. Author of 12 books as well as a business consultant and motivational speaker, Mr. O’Malley’s latest book - Men of Men: Stories of Courage - is about Medal of Honor Recipients with ties to Alabama.
Additional banquet festivities include a brief awards ceremony, a "silent” auction and drawings for several door prizes including gift certificates donated by local merchants. The event is open to the public. Reservations are due by Monday. Tickets are $75 each.
Thanks to the continued support of citizens, the Museum experienced significant success in 2009. The Northgate exhibit continues to expand and be revitalized while artifact stabilization is near completion at the Archival Center in East Chattanooga.
The museum is staffed entirely by volunteers, and its primary source of income is private donations.
