Free Admission to museums to Military

Over at the Army Times, they have a posting about free admission to over 600 museums to military personnel.

This is a new partnership between the military and the National Endowment for the Arts.  Unfortunately, it’ll only be available over the summer, but I think this may actually start a trend.  Considering how most of the ‘Artsy’ crowd is, once they see that not all military personnel are war mongering savages things might start to loosen up on our troops a bit.  It’s not the troops that make the policy, they’re just forced to enforce it.

Now, I’m not saying that all ‘artsy’ types are kooks, as I’m sure there’s a ton of other ‘kooks’ out there in all walks of life.  It’s just that I’ve seen a good number of them within the art community.

For the full story, head on over to the ArmyTimes and check it out.

WASHINGTON — More than 600 museums nationwide are offering free admission to military families all summer in a new partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts.

The list includes some of the nation’s premier art museums, including New York’s Museum of Modern Art and the Art Institute of Chicago, as well as science centers, children’s museums and other sites in all 50 states.
