Jerry Jones Donating $20 Million Toward National Medal Of Honor Museum

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is in a giving mood. More specifically, Jones has decided to pony up a cool $20 million for the new National Medal of Honor Museum and Leadership Institute in Arlington, Texas.

The museum will sit just down the road from AT&T Stadium, where the Cowboys play home games.

“It says everything when I look at (us) saying, ‘We need to show each other love from every kind of bias we can talk about,’” Jones told USA Today. “I’ve never seen anything that nails it like the recognition of the Medal of Honor winners and what they stood for.”

Jones’ donation will help push the museum to $70 million overall, as it prepares to break ground in about a year. Currently, it is finalizing details on the design phase.

“I’m keenly aware,” Jones told USA Today, “that when we endorse or we significantly recognize something special about our country, that’s going to have notice.”

  1. Somewhere an SJW is preparing an OP/ED saying he should have donated that money to BLM, Climate Change Research or the homeless. Dan Snyder and Jerry are both starting to grow on me.
