invites the public to attend several exciting events throughout the week to
show support of our troops. This year’s theme is “Forward with Dignity.”
May 17, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., the public is invited to a military display at

Different branches of the military, including the Marine Corps, Army, Air
Force, Coast Guard and Navy, will have weapons, equipment and interactive
displays on the museum grounds for attendees to see and touch. This event
offers a unique experience to talk with members of the military to learn about
their experiences and the challenges they face maintaining our freedom.
