THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) -

A south Georgia black history museum is honoring service men and women and their families this summer.

All active duty, National Guard, and reserve military personnel and their families can visit the Jack Hadley Black Museum in Thomasville for free through Labor Day.

The museum is one of about two thousand nationwide offering this Blue Star Program.

"We are just so blessed to get this opportunity to give back to our service men because are sacrificing their lives and even though the families don't get involved with the overseas fighting, but they are back sacrificing, raising the kids and stuff like that," said Hadley.

The museum is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
