To honor all who have served, the Two Mississippi Museums are hosting a Veterans Day ceremony this Thursday, November 10.

The event, which will be held on the Entergy Mississippi Plaza in front of the museums, will begin at 10:30 a.m. It will include a performance by the 41st Army Band, recognition of Veterans Day by Sergeant First Class (Retired) Max Fenn, and a tribute to fallen heroes by Major General Janson D. Boyles. A memorial and wreath laying will follow.

“Mississippi’s extraordinary record of military service is one of the most inspiring stories that we share in the Two Mississippi Museums,” MDAH director Katie Blount said. “We are pleased to join with our military service organizations to pay special tribute to all the many Mississippians who have served our country.”

The event is being put on in conjunction with the Daughters of the American Revolution, the Mississippi Veterans Affairs, and the Mississippi War Veterans Memorial Commission. Admission on Thursday will be free to those currently serving in the military, veterans, as well as one family member of every veteran.
