A two-year $6.5 Million Capital Campaign to raise funds to renovate the Oregon Military Museum will begin on May 8, at the Oregon Golf Club, with the All-Star Salute to the Oregon Military

The event, organized by Thayer's son Tommy Thayer, lead guitarist for the rock band KISS, and the Historical Outreach Foundation, hopes to raise enough funds to build and open the new museum by summer, 2014.

The museum will be named in honor of Brig. Gen. James B. Thayer.
