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.
