Texas Heritage Museum Welcomes Active Military

06.03.13

The museum that honors Texas heroes invites all active U.S. servicemen and women to review the heroic exploits of fighting Texans this summer. Texas Heritage Museum, which always has free admission, is participating in the Blue Star Museums program.

“Participating in the Blue Star Museums Program, the Texas Heritage Museum is eternally indebted to the families and friends of our servicemen who stood, and continue to stand, behind each of these heroes,” said John Versluis, director of the museum. “It is never too late for us, individually and collectively, to say we recognize your loss, we respect your sacrifice, and we thank you.”

Blue Star Museums is a collaboration among the National Endowment for the Arts, Blue Star Families, the Department of Defense, and more than 2,000 museums across America.

Texas Heritage Museum, which features artifacts and exhibits from the Texas Revolution through the Vietnam War, is eager to welcome active military, as well as veterans and their families, to share their stories and to learn about the sacrifices that have been made for our freedom. Visitors are also encouraged to pay their respects at the Official State Medal of Honor Memorial to Native-Born Texans.
