Honor the country’s veterans by attending one of the events tomorrow

Veterans Day, held each year on Nov. 11, is a day to remember and honor the country’s many veterans. While COVID-19 cases are on the rise, there are still opportunities for participating in this federal holiday. We’ve found three events that will allow you to honor veterans and current military personnel while remaining socially distanced.

The National Museum of the U.S. Air Force in Dayton, which is always free, will have more than 50 veterans and subject matter experts placed throughout the museum on Nov. 11 to discuss the aircraft and exhibits. From Nov. 11 through Nov. 15, the museum will also be hosting a LEGO military-themed display created by Cincy LUG. The display will include replicas of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and the B-17 Memphis Belle.

The City of Centerville will be hosting a virtual version of its annual Veterans Day Ceremony Nov. 11 on Facebook and MVCC Channel 5 at 11 a.m. This year’s keynote is 88th Air Base Wing Commander Colonel Patrick Miller and three Centerville veterans will be honored for their service.

The Dayton VA Medical Center will be hosting its annual Veterans Day Ceremony Nov. 11 at 11 a.m. in person at the VA’s Grotto Gardens, though social distancing and masks will be required. This year’s speakers include U.S. Senator Rob Portman and former Wright-Patterson AFB Commander Cassie Barlow.
