Medal of Honor Luncheon and Book Signing on Yorktown Tomorrow

From left to right: Navy/Marines, Air Force and Army versions of the Medal of Honor

Tomorrow at 11:00 am, our nation’s living Medal of Honor recipients will arrive at Patriots Point and be escorted down the long pier to the USS Yorktown (CV-10), our nation’s most decorated aircraft carrier with fifteen battle stars. For much of the afternoon Yorktown will literally be “Home of the Brave.” Eight hundred and fifty JROTC cadets will line the pier to offer their salute and honor the bravest of the brave as they arrive.

The luncheon will occur from 11:30 am to 1:30 pm in hangar bay 3, and then the recipients will move to hangar bay 2. They will sign books and greet a select group arranged by the Medal of Honor convention staff. Unfortunately, the book signing is not open to the general public.

The general public is welcome to tour Patriots Point and the Yorktown for FREE all day tomorrow. There will be live entertainment by up and coming country singer Barry Michael. He and his band will be playing in hangar bay 3 during the afternoon from 1:30 pm until 4:30 pm.
