The National Medal of Honor Museum, which breaks ground today in Arlington, TX, will offer an experience that draws personal and emotional connections to Medal of Honor recipients and their stories, while shedding light on the wars in which they fought and the ideals that the Medal of Honor represents.
In concert with the Medal of Honor Society, the National Medal of Honor Museum – at the museum itself and virtually – will also include a robust educational component aimed at youth character development. Designed by teachers, the Institute will provide students with opportunities to explore the concepts of courage, sacrifice, patriotism, citizenship, integrity, and commitment, and how these values can be exemplified in daily life.
Live! Casino & Hotel Philadelphia and Xfinity Live! join their parent company, The Cordish Companies, and their Live! dining, entertainment and gaming resort destinations around the country, to raise $1 million for the National Medal of Honor Museum. In support of this effort, The Cordish Family Foundation has made an upfront additional donation of $1 million to the museum. The yearlong program in support of the museum is a continuation of Cordish’s ongoing commitment to community and philanthropy.
“We are lucky to have The Cordish Companies and Live! as tremendous partners in this historic project to honor the bravest of the brave and inspire America with their stories and legacies,” said National Medal of Honor Museum Foundation President and CEO Chris Cassidy. “Engaging the millions of visitors to Cordish’s Live! Districts across the country will exponentially raise awareness for this mission.”
The National Medal of Honor Museum will open in the Arlington Entertainment District in 2024 adjacent to the Dallas Cowboys’ AT&T Stadium, Texas Rangers’ Globe Life Field, Choctaw Stadium, Texas Live! and Live! by Loews – Arlington, TX.
