The Parrish Art Museum has announced the launch of Blue Star Museums, a collaboration among the National Endowment for the Arts, Blue Star Families, the Department of Defense, and more than 1,500 museums across America to offer free admission to all active duty military personnel and their families from Memorial Day through Labor Day 2012.
With Memorial Day right around the corner, this is one of the many reminders of how important the U.S. Military is to the security and the future success of the country, as well as the enormous sacrifices that it has made in the past.
A lot of our ability to operate as a free nation, even with so many different people, thoughts and opinions, has largely to do with the unity that we have around keeping America strong. Giving these guys a free ticket into a museum is the least we can do.
Don’t forget what Memorial Day is really about while your enjoying your summer vacation on the East End!
