Veterans Day Weekend Information

November 11, 2022 @ 10:00 am - November 13, 2022 @ 5:00 pm

Celebrate veterans this Veterans Day weekend aboard the USS Yorktown! We will offer free admission to Veterans and active duty military from November 11 – 13. Admission to the museum includes access to the warships USS Yorktown and USS Laffey, and the three-acre Vietnam War Experience.

In addition to offering free admission to veterans, on Saturday, November 12, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., the museum and the Patriots Art Foundation will host a live watercolor painting workshop featuring renowned Charleston artist Mary Whyte. Whyte and a team of artists will coach 20 veterans as they paint exhibits located aboard the USS Yorktown.

At 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. on November 12, The Citadel’s Summerall Guards will perform a silent precision drill on USS Yorktown’s flight deck. The exercise will feature a unique series of movements that exemplifies the exactness and thoroughness with which military college trains its cadets.
