Join the National Museum of the Mighty Eighth Air Force on Friday, September 25th
, at the Forest City Gun Club in Savannah for the Wick Searcy Memorial Clay Shoot
The museum, a national treasure that preserves the history of the Eighth Air Force, is dedicated to telling the stories of sacrifice and bravery of the men of the Eighth. Twenty-six thousand men lost their lives in the skies over Occupied Europe, paving the way for the D-Day invasion on June 6, 1944.
The Museum is a vital part of the Greater Savannah community, offering a robust educational program for thousands of area students each year. Whether through compelling Museum tours or by participating in one of our several History Day Camps each summer, young people come away with a better appreciation for the sacrifices made by the Mighty Eighth to preserve our freedom.
By participating in the Clay Shoot, you will play an important role in helping to sustain these efforts, as 100 percent of the proceeds will go towards the Museum’s educational programs.
