The National Medal of Honor Museum Foundation announced Friday it has exceeded the $150 million needed to build the museum in Arlington.
The news comes ahead of the museum’s groundbreaking ceremony on March 25, National Medal of Honor Day.
The foundation’s fundraising efforts have gained support from the Dallas Cowboys and even three former presidents: Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama. The former Commanders in Chief have together produced a PSA asking Americans to support the Museum’s funding and message.
To date, the National Medal of Honor Museum has received donations from 27,272 donors from all 50 states, Washington D.C., Puerto Rico, and more.
