Educational Events for Veterans Day

In honor of Veterans Day, the Education Department at the Hampton Roads Naval Museum is hosting "Thank a Veteran," a day of fun-filled activities for all ages!

Come to the museum and show your gratitude to local veterans for their years of dedicated service. Your cards will be distributed to the VA Hospital in Hampton the following week.

We will also have Jim Callear, a WWII reenactor, come to the museum and set up a WWII Recruiting exhibit in the "Battle of the Atlantic" gallery from 10am to 5pm. The exhibit will include the display of many original WWII items from his collection with uniforms, helmets, 48 star flags, weapons, books, a 1943 calender and typewriters just to mention a few of the items!

As always, these programs are offered free of charge. Come and enjoy the fun!
