    The Foundation is hosting many events in honor of Veterans Day.

    The Moving Wall will arrive the morning of November 9th (around 8AM) and will be set up with the help of volunteers by around 12PM.  Once the Wall is built it will be open to the public 24 hours a day until it is taken down the morning of Monday, November 13th.

    This year’s Salute to Veterans flag display will be made even more special by the presence of the Moving Vietnam Wall. The stick flags sponsored in honor of veterans will be displayed in the parade field in front of the Memorial from Friday, November 10th to Monday, November 20th. The Salute to Veterans flag display is intended to celebrate and honor the service of all veterans regardless of time served, branch of service, or war time service.  Flags may be ordered through the gift shop, online, or by calling 910-643-2778.

    The Evening of Thursday, November 9th at 6:30 the Foundation along with Rolling Thunder NC Chapter 1 will host a Gold Star Torch Light Ceremony.  We invite all Gold Star Families, particularly those with a loved one listed on the Vietnam Wall, to join us and the community as we honor the families of the fallen.

    Veterans Day, Saturday, November 11th, we will hold two showings of a Bob Hope Tribute Show as well as the Moving Wall Ceremony at 1PM.

    The first show: On The Air – A Tribute To Bob Hope, A Salute To Veterans begins at 11AM.  “On the Air” is a Bob Hope Tribute show presented by Lynn Roberts and Chuck Carson of the Phoenix Producers Group also featuring former Miss Fayetteville Katie Mills.

    The Ceremony Dedicating the Moving Wall will be held at 1PM.  We invite all Vietnam Veterans, family members, and the community to join us as we remember and honor all the service members listed on the Memorial Wall.

    The Airborne & Special Operations Museum Foundation supports the museum with marketing, advertising and financial support for its programs and exhibits. Opening the doors on August 16th, 2000, the 60th anniversary of the original United States Army’s Test Platoon’s first parachute jump, the museum offers free admission, a main exhibit gallery, temporary gallery, four-story tall theater, video theater and a motion simulator ride. It is located in Historic Downtown Fayetteville on the corner of Bragg Boulevard and Hay Street, adjacent to the city’s Freedom Memorial Park and the recently built North Carolina Veteran’s Park. The main gallery is designed as a self-guiding tour, in chronological order, through the history of the airborne and special operations soldiers, from 1940 to the present. The temporary gallery changes throughout the year and displays a myriad of exhibits pertaining to the United States Army, airborne and special operation units through their history and conflicts from World War II to the present. For a nominal fee visitors can ride the 24 seat motion simulator. Find our privacy policy here.
