EDINBURG, Texas — The Museum of South Texas History is now participating in the Blue Star Museums, a program offering free admission to active-duty military personnel and their families this summer through Labor Day, Sept. 2, 2024.

“The museum is a repository for important documents emanating from the military service of numerous South Texas veterans, and we want active-duty military personnel and their families to have easy access to those documents,” said MOSTHistory CEO Francisco Guajardo.  

Currently on exhibit is Sgt. González’s Marine uniform, Purple Heart and two letters he wrote from Vietnam to his mother, Dolia González.
