The Greatest Generation will be honored at a WWII Wreath Remembrance Ceremony aboard the USS Midway Museum on Saturday, May 28, at 9 a.m. The free, family-friend event will include a flyover, a Greatest Generation speaker, and the presentation of a handmade quilt to every WWII veteran in attendance. The quilts are made by Quilts of Valor, a nonprofit group of San Diegans dedicated to providing quilts “of comfort and healing” for veterans and active-duty personnel.

Biodegradable commemorative wreaths also will be presented over the side by veterans, active-duty personnel, and youngsters from the audience. This is an inspirational celebration for all ages.

The event is free to the public and those who attend are invited to stay aboard and explore the USS Midway Museum at no charge as well.

Dates and times of events are subject to change without notice. Always check the event organizer's website for the most updated schedule before attending. Check local COVID-19 restrictions and updates.
