The mission of Carolina Museum of the Marine is to create and sustain an historical and educational complex showcasing the selfless sacrifice, extraordinary achievements and steadfast service of Carolina Marines and Sailors and their host communities while promoting the core values of American citizenship.
Carolina Museum of the Marine and Citizenship Institute seeks to memorialize the contributions of Carolina Marines and Sailors and the communities who support them. Our Long Live the Legends Campaign is expanding to include “The Marine Experience”, an immersive museum showcasing the many firsts of the Carolinas and “The Citizenship Institute”, founded by General Al Gray, USMC (Ret), 29th Commandant of the United States Marine Corps.
“We have an overall opportunity to provide a forward-thinking institute designed to ensure that the contributions of our United States Marines to our Nation’s freedom are remembered, teach young and old alike, through the use of advanced technologies, the civic virtue in understanding what made our great Nation a leader of the free world and help prepare our young people to lead, to follow and to cope with future challenges.”
General Al Gray, 29th Commandant
