Arlington set to be future home for new Medal of Honor Museum

Texas Governor, Greg Abbott and U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) Thursday issued congratulatory statements applauding the decision to designate the City of Arlington, Texas, as the location for the new Medal of Honor Museum.

“Texas has long been a proud supporter of the United States military, our veterans and their families, and today’s announcement is a testament to that deep, continuing commitment,” said Governor Abbott. “Our Medal of Honor recipients are the bravest of the brave — American heroes who have been awarded our nation’s highest honor for valor in action, and their stories must not be forgotten. I congratulate the City of Arlington, the Greater Arlington Chamber of Commerce and all who worked so hard to bring the museum to Texas.”

“This is great news for the City of Arlington and for Texas, home to 1.8 million veterans and active duty military,” said Sen. Cruz. “The Medal of Honor is our nation’s highest and most prestigious military decoration, and I’m proud that the Lone Star state will host the museum to recognize all the men and women who received this distinction. These brave service members risked their lives to defend our freedom and our values, and Heidi and I join all of Texas, and the entire country, in commemorating them.”
