New York-based television commentator Dee Dee Benkie, a supporter of the Museum of the Marine, said, “The heart of America is the men and women who have fought our country’s battles on the frontlines and defended our liberty. Long Live the Legends! May we always remember their dedicated honor, courage and commitment to the service of this great nation. The Museum of the Marine remembers the legends by capturing the very essence of the Marines and Sailors bravery for generations to come.”
The Long Live the Legends campaign is designed to kindle the patriotic fire in the hearts of Marines and Sailors who have served in the Carolinas. Marines from all over New York have left a very special imprint upon the communities of North and South Carolina. The Museum of the Marine’s focus is to recognize our warriors and honor them on Independence Day, creating a daily tribute that will establish a tower of history and learning for both the Carolinas and New York communities.
About The Museum of the Marine: The Museum of the Marine is designed to pay tribute to these exceptional men and women—the Carolina Marines—whose training prepared them for service and leadership in the defense of our country. Within the walls of this 40,000 square-foot facility, we will tell the stories of the Carolina Marines, their units, bases and stations, and epic battles, and of the Carolina communities that have supported them.
