"Receiving free admission to a museum might seem simple enough. But it allows service members to enjoy a summer full of fascinating outings without financial worry. It tells them that the cultural community cares for them, and is ready to welcome them with open arms. It provides a momentary distraction from the stress and worry of deployment. And perhaps most special of all, it gives families a chance to simply be together as a family, to connect or reconnect, and create new memories." We're starting off our Memorial Day weekend by reading this piece by National Endowment for the Arts Acting Chairman Mary Anne Carter about the 10th anniversary of the Blue Star Museums program and why it is so meaningful to our service members and their families.
