This was just sent to me by a relative and I thought it might be of interest to the group. I've taken the liberty of just copying the text from the email...

 

Arlington Wins!!!!

Arlington, Texas Selected as Site for First Ever National Medal of Honor Museum Selection Follows a Year-Long, National Search The National Medal of Honor Museum Foundation announced today that, following a national search launched in October 2018, Arlington, Texas has been selected by the Foundation’s Board of Directors as the site for the future National Medal of Honor Museum. Planned for construction near Arlington’s Globe Life Park and AT&T Stadium, the first national museum of its kind would open to the public in 2024.

“Arlington, Texas is the optimal location to build America’s next national treasure – the National Medal of Honor Museum,” said Joe Daniels, President and CEO of the National Medal of Honor Museum Foundation. “All of us at the Museum were simply overwhelmed with the enthusiasm, warmth and level of commitment of those involved, who have worked beyond expectation to have the Museum come to Texas. Seventy recipients of the Congressional Medal of Honor have lived in the region and nearly 1.8 million veterans and active duty military currently call Texas home. Centuries of American history are filled with examples of selfless heroism and love of country shown by the men and women of this great state. We look forward to partnering with Governor Abbott, Mayor Williams, public and private leaders, and the entire North Texas community as we carry out our important mission – to honor our nation’s Medal of Honor recipients for future generations.”

The Medal of Honor, the nation’s highest and most prestigious military honor, has been awarded to more than 3,500 military service members since the first medal was presented in 1863. The National Medal of Honor Museum will offer an experience that draws personal and emotional connections to Medal of Honor recipients and their inspiring stories, while shedding light on the stories of heroism and the values that the Medal of Honor represents.

Intersting enough, if anyone caught the coin toss in the Cowboys vs. Packers game yesterday, they announced the new MOH museum and had several MOH receipients on the field for the coin toss. I always thought that the MOH Society & Museum had/has a permanent home in Charleston, SC?
