The Society now has a home in Eastpointe Michigan. We are growing and developing new partnerships to support the community.
The multiple focus on museum displays as well as reenactments provides mutiple venues to the public. These venues educate as well as give access to veterans to display their memorabilia.

The Michigan Military Technical & Historical Society has loaned many items to the Warren (MI) Historical & Genealogical Society for display at our museum on several occasions. These displays have included uniforms, helmets, gas masks, blankets, photographs and all matter of historical military articles. The MMTHS representatives provided detailed information on each piece so that factual signage could be included in the displays. We will definitely be calling on the MMTHS for future assistance to help encourage knowledge of our nation's military history.

Being only a year old at the time of this review, the organization has come a long way. A member base has been built, displays have been constructed, collection items have been aquired, and lots more. MTHS holds great promise for the future in all of its endeavors.

The MI Military Technical Historical Society put on an amazing display of materials at the 2009 Bath City Heritage Area's display at the Stars and Stripes Festival. They far exceeding their expectations for the display. It was extremely professional looking even though it was only a weekend installation. Many event attendees thought the MiMTHS display was a permanent exhibit.

Mount Clemens. They did an exceptional job!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

have more money to accomplish their mission and hire a full-time director.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

their enthusiasm for their topic.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

dedicated and excited.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

complete their Arsenal of Democracy museum, which is a vital story for Michigan to tell about itself.

Ways to make it better...

it couldn't have been better.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

weak economy and a lack of the SE Michigan philanthropic community to support any new cultural institutions - no matter how important the story is.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Keep up the great work.
