Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has made plenty of money. He’s sharing a large chunk of it.

Jones and his family have donated $20 million to the National Medal of Honor Museum Foundation, pushing the total funds raised for the venue past $70 million.

Charlotte Jones, a Cowboys executive and Jerry’s daughter, serves as Chairman of the Board for the National Medal of Honor Museum.

The first Medals of Honor were awarded during the Civil War. March 25 is the annual National Medal of Honor Day, which started in 1991. It is the nation’s highest military decoration for valor, and more than 3,500 have been awarded to members of the American armed forces.

The National Medal of Honor Museum will be constructed in Arlington, Texas. It’s scheduled to open in 2024.

  1. Thank You Jones famiy for giving back to those Brave men who served so proudly! With the world so upside down lately us Veterans seem to be getting forgotten in the Chaos. Thank you all for those kind words of “thank you for your service”. I means more to us then you know.

  2. The first one given out was to Jacob Parrot who stole a Southern army train right under their nose. It was called the great locomotive chase. Good job Mr Jones.

  3. I know this will be an unpopular opinion, but it seems like $70 million could do a lot more good than a war museum.

    Don’t be ridiculous. The needs of a museum clearly outweigh luxuries like feeding the hungry or finding treatments for disease.

    To be fair, what if that museum gets donations or admission fees and uses it to earn even more money for those vets? Then that doesn’t seem like a waste right?
