LUBBOCK, Texas (NEWS RELEASE) - Active military personnel and their families will receive free admission to the Buddy Holly Center and the Silent Wings Museum this summer.

The two institutions have teamed up with the National Endowment for the Arts, Blue Star Families and thousands of other museums across the nation to launch the Blue Star Museums program.

The program began on Armed Forces Day, May 21. The program will continue through Labor Day, September 5.

Free admission is available for those currently serving in the United States military, including the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps and Coast Guard.
