Feel free to use in publications and pages with attribution but you don't have permission to sell the photos themselves. A free copy of any printed publication using any photographs is requested. Descriptive text, if any, is from a mixture of sources, quite frequently from signs at the location or from official web sites; copyrights, if any, are retained by their original owners.
- Spiders: The system has identified your IP as being a spider. I love well-behaved spiders! They are, in fact, how most people find my site. Unfortunately, my network has a limited bandwidth and pictures take up bandwidth. Spiders ask for lots and lots of pages and chew up lots and lots of bandwidth which slows things down considerably for regular folk. To counter this, you'll see all the text on the page but the images are being suppressed. Also, a number of options like merges are being blocked for you.
Note: Permission is NOT granted for spiders, robots, etc to use the site for AI-generation purposes. I'm excited for your ability to make revenue from my work but there's nothing in that for my human users or for me.
If you are in fact human, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can check if your designation was made in error. Given your number of hits, that's unlikely but what the hell.

- Description of Subject Matter: Various galleries here:
Global War On Terrorism (which, oddly enough, is mostly about Iraq)
Capturing the Hearts of Americans
Also the tavern and whatever else came up.
Along the Legacy Walk, visitors are immersed in more than 200 years of Marine Corps history. Entering the Legacy Walk visitors are greeted by Colonial Marines perched high atop a sailing ship’s “fighting top” ready to sweep the decks of an opposing ship with withering musket fire. Only yards away, two-time Medal of Honor recipient Dan Daly fights on the Tartar Wall in Peking in 1900. Farther on, a World War I Marine locked in hand-to-hand combat with a German soldier reminds visitors that war can be intensely personal. Continuing along the Legacy Walk, a Navy corpsman works frantically to save a wounded Marine during World War II. Overhead, a de Havilland DH-4 prepares to pick up a message pouch during the “Banana Wars” of the 1920s and the UH-1E Huey helicopter in which Marine Maj Stephen Pless earned the Medal of Honor in 1968 is proudly displayed.
Photographs, maps, iconic artifacts and life-like cast figures capture the courage of individual Marines and the evolution of the Marine Corps as a whole. The Legacy Walk includes a timeline detailing the Marine’s activities at home and abroad since 1775 and introduces visitors to the cooperative relationship between the Marine Corps and the US Navy, the Marine Air-Ground Team and the many innovations developed by the Marine Corps to improve its operational capabilities. Special exhibits along the Legacy Walk explore the meaning of the Marine creed Semper Fidelis, the history behind the Marines’ Hymn, and other facets of Marine Corps culture.
For visitors with only a limited amount of time to spend at the National Museum of the Marine Corps, the Legacy Walk provides a quick initiation into the rich and storied history of the Corps. Additionally, the Legacy Walk connects the museum’s four primary exhibit galleries and provides access to both Scuttlebutt Theater and the flight simulators.

Global War On Terrorism:
This gallery gives visitors a glimpse onto today’s fields of battle, precipitated by the acts of terrorism suffered by the U.S. on 11 September 2001. Through photographs, combat art, maps, and text, the museum shares with the visitor powerful images from Afghanistan and Iraq. Because these conflicts are ongoing, this gallery will be frequently updated.
Marine Corps photographers assigned to Combat Camera Units capture powerful images that add depth and detail, personality and emotion to battlefield scenes. Their work also helps commanders in the field who need images to make real-time decisions and learn lessons. Since World War II, photographers armed with rifles and camera equipment have been documenting everything the field units do—from eating in makeshift mess halls to charging through combat zones. Today, 400 personnel are assigned to Combat Camera. Unless noted otherwise, Combat Camera personnel, who deploy globally wherever Marines are in the fight, took the photographs in this gallery.
War disrupts family life, and it is especially hard for children to understand why their mother, father, or siblings must deploy to places so far away. Children have their own special place in this gallery to help them understand why their loved ones have been called away.
This is a temporary exhibition. When the National Museum of the Marine Corps opens its second phase, it will dedicate a permanent gallery that fully explores the deployment of Marines during the post-Vietnam War era, including the conflicts in the Persian Gulf, the Global War on Terrorism, and the many other actions Marines have been called upon to perform.

I still have them though. If you want me to email them to you, please send an email to email@example.com
and I can email them to you, or, depending on the number of images, just repost the page again will the full-sized images.
