U.S. Army Heritage and Education Center


The Mission of USAHEC is to engage, inspire, and inform the Army, the American people, and global partners with a unique and enduring source of knowledge and thought.

The USAHEC is undertaking a large-scale digitization project including many of our manuscripts, photographs, audio-visual, artifact, and other collections. There will be times that collections are not available due to the digitization process.

We also have a new search interface that will integrate the collections of the U.S. Army Heritage and Education Center into one search: books, manuscripts, audio-visual materials, art, weapons, uniforms, and more! Please note that during our time of transition, the search system may not show all collections available to researchers. Please contact our Reference Desk, 717-245-3949, for assistance. We ask for your patience as we strive to meet the needs of all of our patrons.
