Groundbreaking Ceremony to Mark Launch of California State Military Museum (Sacramento Branch)

​SACRAMENTO, Calif. - The California Military Department will host a groundbreaking ceremony at
10 a.m. on Thursday, June 30, in downtown Sacramento to commemorate the launch of the California
State Military Museum (Sacramento). The museum will be the latest site in what is a statewide military
museum system run by the California State Military Reserve. Credentialed media are invited to attend.

“The Sacramento branch of the California State Military Museum marks our most recent effort to connect
the public with the rich military history of California,” said Maj. Gen. David S. Baldwin, Adjutant
General of California. “California is home to more veterans than any other state, and our museum system
must reflect that high level of dedication and service.”

The June 30 ceremony will include displays of military aircraft, vehicles and artifacts, and personnel
dressed in historic military uniforms. In 1981, the state charged California’s Adjutant General with the
responsibility of establishing and maintaining a California Military Museum. Today, the California State
Military Reserve operates museums, artifacts and displays at sites across the state, including San Diego,
Long Beach, San Luis Obispo, Paso Robles, and Sacramento, where the latest museum will officially
open later this year.
