Holiday Wishes from The Mariners' Museum Library

The minutes are ticking away here at the Library because the holiday break is upon us yet again.

Just so you know, we will be closed, and services will not be available, beginning December 20, 2013 to January 5, 2014.

Before I leave, I just wanted to thank you for a great year and to wish you all a safe and happy holiday! Enjoy this last post of 2013!

In this image from our HRPE Collection, Santa poses and receives bags of mail and packages for the soldiers at Newport News, VA on November 21, 1945.


In this next image, also from our HRPE Collection, Brigadier General John R. Kilpatrick is shown standing beside a Christmas tree before making a statement at the Christmas gathering on the Norfolk Army Base on December 24, 1942.


Finally, some more festive images from the HRPE Collection to get you into the spirit of the holidays.
