The National Veterans Memorial and Museum (NVMM) in Columbus, Ohio, represents a national initiative of profound importance for our nation's 20+ million living veterans. There was previously no single monument or museum dedicated to sharing the Veteran's experience. With 30,000 square feet of exhibit space, this institution celebrates the service and honors the sacrifice of Veterans throughout history in war and peacetime. The memorial and museum was envisioned by the late Senator John Glenn (1921-2016), Colonel, U.S. Marine Corps (Retired), as a gathering place for Veterans from across the country. The NVMM presents the Veteran experience through the lens of personal stories and life changing experiences from which visitors will be inspired to learn more about our country's history and actively engage in their own communities as informed citizens.
The NVMM seeks a Marketing Communications intern to assist the External Affairs Office. Candidates must have excellent communication skills, strong writing skills, and ability to work in a creative, team environment.
