The Museum of Flight recognizes Veterans Day with a short musical performance by the Boeing Employees Concert Band and ceremony at 12:00 PM featuring our 2019 Keynote Speaker, Gen. Peter W. Chiarelli, color guard, and remarks from local city and Museum officials.

During the celebration, representatives of Marysville Ford, Wells Fargo and Military Warriors Support Foundation will present a payment-free vehicle to retired U.S. Army Sergeant Matt Watters in honor of his service and sacrifice. The vehicle donation is made possible by Maryville Ford and Wells Fargo through Military Warriors Support Foundation’s Transportation4Heroes program.
