Coos History Museum pays tribute to veterans on Coastal Area
COOS COUNTY, Ore. - The Coos History Museum is paying tribute to veterans in the Coastal area.
One of the two special exhibits features U.S. Coast Guard Art, which will be held on Thursday. The works are all done by members of the Coast Guard.
The second of the exhibits is still to come, but it's titled Vet Ink: Military Inspired Tattoos.
"There are over 8,000 veterans living in Coos County, and also we are a Coast Guard Community," said Susan Tissot, the Executive Director of the Museum. "We wanted to do something to honor and recognize that service in the community."
Veterans get in for free all year, but the museum is also a Blue Star facility. It offers free admission to active duty members and their families.
