Clint Eastwood Named Honorary Chairman of National Law Enforcement Officers Museum

We desperately wanted to begin this post with something like, “You’ve gotta ask yourself: do I feel lucky? Well, do you, museum?” but that would be tacky and we respect you too much. Instead, we’ll just tell you that the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial and Museum in Washington, DC has signed on Clint Eastwood as its Honorary Chairman. The under-construction museum, which just broke ground this past fall across the street from the National Memorial, joined up with the museum largely in what sounds like a fundraising and awareness effort as they try and reach their $80 million goal to complete the Davis Buckley Architects and Planners-designed museum (thus far, they’ve received $43 million). Said Eastwood about becoming its honorary chairman, “The National Memorial and Museum are long overdue and richly deserved tributes to the men and women in law enforcement.” Below you’ll find a 2006 rendering of the building, which is expected to be completed and open for business some time by the end of 2013.
