Beyond the National Archives: Unique and Meaningful Alternative Locations for Military Ceremonies in Washington D.C.
Explore the Best Location Alternatives when The National Archives is booked.
A few years ago, the Federal government was in full shutdown due to budgeting negotiations in Congress. Which caused the museums in Washington D.C. to close, including the National Archives. Due to this, many military members were looking for an alternative location to hold their military promotion or retirement ceremony in the Washington D.C. area. I shared an article detailing several alternatives to the famous and iconic National Archives for military ceremonies.
Outside the locations discussed in the first article, there are plenty of other great options in the city and surrounding areas. Now that the government is back in full swing, The National Archives usually book out several months in advance. Which means a lot of planning must go into secure your desired location for your military promotion or retirement ceremony as soon as possible.
