Officers

The SMH Council welcomes and encourages your feedback, not just on the recently-released letter, but on any aspect of SMH governance. A new form has been created that will continue as a means for you to anonymously inform your elected officers and the executive director on your concerns and suggestions to improve upon our mission to further the study of military history.
