The Museum of Flight hosts the fifth annual Marine Week from July 30 to August 3! Marine Week is a celebration of Community, Country and Corps – providing the American public the unique experience to directly connect with hundreds of Marines.
During the week-long event, Seattleites will have the opportunity to climb aboard state-of-the-art aircraft and ground equipment, check out the latest military technology and combat weaponry, witness hand-to-hand martial arts demonstrations and engage in clinics with Marine Corps sports teams, all while taking in the sights and sounds of the Silent Drill Platoon. Displays at the Museum include an Osprey, Harrier, Cobra, M1A1 Abrams tank, LAV-25 reconnaissance vehicle, artillery equipment, robotics, and much more!
Seattle-based units have served tours during World War II, Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm, Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom, while three of Seattle’s own Marines and two others from Washington state have earned the distinct recognition of receiving the Congressional Medal of Honor.
