Program 2

Public Education

The contributions of the soldiers of the 10th Mountain Division to the post-war world are many and varied.  From the political contributions of Senator Dole to the sporting and recreation work my the thousands of recreational skiers, hikers and outdoorsmen, this unit has made a lasting but unknown impact on the world we live in.

 

Our educational programs are designed to capture the interest of the public, sharing these contributions with school children and members of the public at large.

Funding Needs

Expansion of our outreach programs depend on 3 needs:  staffing, transportation and artifact acquisition.  Staffing is all volunteers, and had no direct cost.  Transportation and artifact acquisition have increased in cost significantly.  Our primary transportation vehicle has 250,000 miles on it, and fuel costs seem to rise daily.  Estimated fule costs alone are $1800 annually, and the cost of a replacement vehicle is over $26000.  With the increased interest in this group, the artifact costs have risen, decreasing our ability to source, preserve and display theve items.  In 2000, our cost to outfit a single docent was around $400 - the 2010 estimated cost is now over $2200.
