Inquirer.net: USS Hornet Museum Veteran’s Day events—premier of film ‘Eleven,’ reception, October 24, 2014
The USS Hornet Museum will host a special Veteran’s Day Ceremony on Tuesday, November 11 with two notable events: the annual Memorial Service with commemorative wreath-commitment; and activities honoring Carrier Air Group 11, one of the heroic air groups that flew from the USS Hornet CV-12 during WWII.
This includes an evening premier screening of the documentary “Eleven” – a moving and fascinating new film about surviving Air Group 11 members. The public and the media are invited to attend and participate in all activities.
The USS Hornet will be open on Veteran’s Day from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and is located at 707 W. Hornet Ave., Pier 3, in Alameda. All military veterans wearing unit jackets or hats, or who have proper ID, will receive free admission. Admission prices for the general public runs $10-20. Parking is free.
