"I want to take this opportunity to thank you for the great support the NMMC staff provided me and my family for my son's commissioning. At 1700 17 June on the second floor overlook I commissioned my son Robert a 2nd Lt in our Corps. We had over 50 guests and a reception in the Tun Tavern afterwards. Dick Camp and the Tun Tavern and catering support was superb! I especially want to point out the professional and attentive efforts of Pam Dodson, Diane Palmer, Kelly Harris, Robert LeChance and Sara O'Bryan. The event was made that more special by their efforts."

- Royal P. Mortenson, Colonel, U.S. Marine Corps; Director, Command and Staff College

"As you are aware, I hosted an event at the Museum this past Sunday.  The event was extremely well received by my clients and wonderfully enhanced by the dedicated service of Diane Palmer and her folks at Guest Services.  All my clients raved about the food, attentive service, and of course, the magnificence of the Museum."

- James A. Ardaiolo, CFP™, Senior Financial Advisor, Ameriprise Financial

"Thank you for helping to make the 2009 Annual Awards and Chamber Gala a great success.  We appreciate all of your hard work and the attention to detail that you and your staff provided.

Your service was excellent, the food was wonderful and the décor was beautiful.  Diane Palmer and Pam Dodson were especially helpful in the initial planning stages and were there for us throughout the event, and we could not have put on such a wonderful event without them.  A special thank you goes to the chef who created a wonderful reception for our guests.

- Robert Hagan, President, Fredericksburg Chamber of Commerce

"I would like to formally recognize and thank you for your individual contribution to the 2009 Harrier Operational Advisory Group Conference (OAG) event at the National Museum of the Marine Corps in Quantico, Va.  This event and its presentation in such a revered venue were highlights of our annual conference.  Your efforts were instrumental in its overwhelming success.

I am personally grateful for your work in helping to make the 2009 Harrier OAG event at the Museum, organized by the Marine Aircraft Group 13, a great success.

- C.M. Woltman, Commanding Officer, Marine Aircraft Group 13

"My wife and I would like to express our appreciation and gratitude for our evening at the Museum. Everything exceeded our expectations and everyone was so wonderful. Our party came straggling in from all over the place and you and your amazing staff didn’t miss a beat. Thank you again for making a special day for our family."

- Guy & Debbie Maxwell

"The recent visit by a contingent of members of our Company to the National Museum of the Marine Corps on Thursday, 14 May, was a thoroughly enjoyable event that will be long remembered as a highlight of an eventful four-day trip to our Nation’s Capital. This success was due in no small part to your dedicated efforts to ensure that our members in attendance were provided with a most inclusive and detailed tour of the National Museum of the Marine Corps. Your cordial hospitality while accommodating our relatively sizeable group, as well as your impressive knowledge of the museum’s displays and Marine Corps history were greatly appreciated by all.

On behalf of the Company, thank you for a memorable visit to the National Museum of the Marine Corps, and for a job very well done!"

- CPT Jerome V. Sweeney II, KM, Ancient and Honorable Artillery Company of Massachusetts

"I wanted to take a moment to express my appreciation for the absolutely stellar job you and Ms. Pamela Dodson did in support of the recent quarterly Naval Laboratories and Warfare Centers Competency Group (NLCCG) tours and dinner. Sharing little-known facts as you guided us through the Museum, you brought the tour to life for us. The tour and dinner service were the perfect touch to truly remind us of the true impact of what we do on a daily basis…support the war fighter. I cannot say thank you enough."

- James E. Thomsen, Principal Civilian Deputy, Assistant Secretary of the Navy (RD&A)

“I would like to thank all the dedicated staff at the Marine Corps Museum to include Security, Tour Guides, and especially Pam Dodson and Diane Palmer and the Staff for helping to make my husband’s birthday party a great success and an evening to remember for all our family and friends.

It is an honor for me to be the wife of a Marine and to be part of such an elite family. As he toasted Col Powers, my son put it so gallantly when he said, “I am so honored to be standing in this daunting place celebrating my Dad’s Birthday and celebrating him as a Marine. Man and honor are all around us, and I know that this is where the cost of freedom for all Americans truly lies.””

- Carole Baker-Powers

I am writing to thank you for your outstanding support during my retirement ceremony on June 6, 2009. It was truly an honor to be able to use your wonderful facility for our celebration. The professionalism of you and your staff helped make my ceremony quite memorable for me and my family.

- J. David Allen, LtCol USMC Retired

"Thank you so much for opening your fine museum to our wedding and thank you for arranging all the details and paperwork for us! Our wedding day was just perfect and the venue couldn´t have been better! We couldn´t think of a greater place for our wedding and it wouldn´t have been the same if hadn´t been at your museum – the location is stunning, as you know."
