The USS Constitution Museum will launch a Salute to Service initiative to transform itself into a hub for conversation, connection, and community around military service. A strategic focus on service members, veterans, and their families will significantly strengthen and expand how the museum, in collaboration with the U.S. Navy's USS Constitution, enhances the general public's understanding of the military community. The major goals of the initiative are for the military community members to see the museum as a trusted space for community engagement, and civilian participants in Salute to Service programs to gain an elevated understanding of military service and family sacrifice.
