The National Constitution Center will pay special tribute to our nation’s servicemen and women on Veterans Day, Thursday, November 11, 2010 starting at 10:00 a.m. Highlighting the Center’s celebration: visitors will have the chance to thank soldiers stationed in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Kuwait via live videoconferencing technology provided by Telikin.
The USO of Pennsylvania and Southern New Jersey also has coordinated opportunities for military families to chat with their loved ones overseas. The event takes place against the backdrop of the Art of the American Soldier exhibition. Museum admission will be free for veterans all day.
There will be fun events for children as well, including military muster drills, flag folding demonstrations, activity stations and interactive shows.
With my husband being a Veteran I make sure our family celebrates Veterans Day every year. This is a great way for all families to pay tribute.
