National Endowment for the Arts Chairman Rocco Landesman said,
“America’s museums are proud to join the rest of the country in thanking our military personnel and their families for their service and sacrifice,I cannot imagine a better way to do that than welcoming them in to explore and enjoy the extraordinary cultural heritage our museums present. The works of art on view this summer will inspire and challenge viewers, and sometimes they will just be a great deal of fun.”
