A special tribute to mark President Ronald Reagan’s birth will occur during the Super Bowl, which will kick off on the 40th president’s birthday this year. Details about the tribute at Super Bowl XLV in Cowboys Stadium in Texas are a “tightly kept secret,” The Washington Post reported
Other plans to mark the Feb. 6, 1911, birth of Reagan in Tampico, Ill., are coalescing around the globe. The National Archives has opened an exhibit in Washington of memorabilia concerning Reagan’s foreign policy and plans to host several other exhibits during the years, the Post reported. The U.S. Postal Service will release a postage stamp on Feb. 10, and a joint session of Congress is planned.
Capitals of former Soviet bloc countries, such as Budapest and Prague, are also planning to host conferences and raise statues to the president instrumental in ending the Cold War.
"A good number of people we're dealing with were in prison or threatened during Reagan's presidency. They're very emotional about this," John Heubusch, executive director of the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation, told the Post.
