Join us as the Museum of Flight, in conjunction with the Navy League of the United States, the Air Force Association, and the Association of the US Army, once again commemorates Armed Forces Day with a series of special events. The centerpiece will be a 12 noon flag raising ceremony, where donated flags of the five branches and the POW/MIA flag will be raised on flag poles in front of the Museum's main entrance. The day will also feature an 11am public program and discussion with Rear Admiral Keith A. Taylor (USCG) and Brigadier General Mark R. Wise (USMC), a country music concert, military equipment displays and visits from military recruiters and ROTC groups. Active military personnel and their families (up to five total) will be admitted free to the Museum.
