Additionally, as part of the museum's living history project, veterans are urged to attend and have their portrait taken by the museum's photographers. All veterans are invited to bring a military-time photo and a piece of memorabilia if they would like to share it in their photo.

  1. Thank You for thinking about our event! Weather permitting, the warbirds will be up... About 1:00 we will be flying our "YellowBird" it is a WW2 glider.

    The bands will be in the hangar, so bring your lawn chairs and sit a while!
