Veterans Memorial Building Museum and Historical Collections

Library and Historical Collections Mission:
To honor the service and sacrifices of our country’s veterans, to educate and foster appreciation, understanding and knowledge of our country’s history; our mission is to collect
and preserve memorabilia and books of the military history of the United States with special emphasis on veterans and their families of the San Ramon Valley.

This guide is intended to inform docents and visitors to the VMB about the memorabilia in the displays. The exhibits will evolve as new items are obtained or as things are rotated from storage. Please forward any questions or comments to info@vmbsrv.org or to Tim Sammons, Curator, Library and Historical Collection Committee at curator@vmbsrv.org.

Shown here is a plan view of the first floor of the veterans area of the Veterans Memorial Building. Enumerated and highlighted in green are the cabinets that house the Museum and Historical Collections, roughly in order of military conflict (when applicable).

 

Upper Display Cabinets
The upper cabinets over the main display cases contain various uniforms and uniform items of our armed services. In addition to the uniforms, they also contain personal effects, souvenirs, hats and memorabilia donated primarily by our local Valley veterans, service members and their families. These displays will rotate over time.
