CAMP PENDLETON, Calif. --
All the welcome-home signs hung here for those returning from deployment eventually come down. And despite whatever care and sincerity went into delivering the message, the posters and banners often end up either stored away or in a trash bin.
However, at the National Museum of the Marine Corps in Triangle, Va., such objects have a place of lasting interest, and Camp Pendleton officials want to send these artifacts to the museum.
This January, Camp Pendleton officials are collecting signs that have served the purpose of welcoming home Marines and sailors and are asking owners or those responsible for discarding the signs to please deliver such materials to the Public Affairs Office at Building 1160.
All posters and banners will be reviewed, and any item that can fit in a poster tube will be mailed to Triangle for the museum's consideration. The turn-in deadline is Feb. 28.
