VETERANS DAY WEST 2021
Southern California is the home and capital of the largest veteran population in the country, yet does not have a leading Veterans Day event supporting the military & veteran community. At Battleship IOWA, we feel a deep responsibility and are thrilled to host an event every one of our veterans, military, and their families will be proud of. We want them to know how grateful we are for their service, sacrifice, and dedication to duty on behalf of all Americans. Such a grand occasion deserves a grand setting – at the Battleship IOWA Museum.
It is our great honor to welcome you to the inaugural VETERANS DAY WEST celebration! Join Veterans West at Battleship IOWA on Veterans Day as we recognize and pay the ultimate respect and appreciation to all those who have served in the armed forces.
Considered one of southern California’s best outdoor museums, USS Iowa hosts many events throughout the year providing an ideal location for our most patriotic celebrations. Here at USS Iowa it is Veterans Day everyday as we serve the veteran community year-round through our many programs and outreach services through our veteran pillar and Veterans West department. We are also very proud to have many veterans employed at the Pacific Battleship Center – USS Iowa helping it to be a premiere destination for all patriots.
Veterans Day West will be a historic inaugural event as we will be bringing together community leaders, veteran organizations, entertainers, and the general public to provide a family-friendly day full of entertainment. With our nation battling challenges, we feel a day full of celebration is as needed as ever. These may be challenging times, but our veterans have taught us that our nation’s determination, resilience, and strength can overcome anything. We look to them as our inspiration and as our most treasured citizens and we must persevere to pay respect to their service.
With that, Veterans Day will forge ahead and we hope you and your family can join us in making this inaugural event a historic one!
