This annual ceremony serves as a tribute to all of our nation's veterans who have and continue to selflessly defend our nation and freedom. Through this Signature Event, we aim to recognize the courage and sacrifice of all American veterans and honor the legacy of the peace they helped to achieve.
This year, the Battleship Missouri dedicates our ceremony to the veterans of the Vietnam War whose sacrifice and commitment to freedom align directly with the Battleship Missouri's legacy of peace. In addition to the 70th Anniversary of the End of World War II, 2015 also marks the 40th Anniversary of the End of the Vietnam War. Although not historically engaged in this conflict, as an internationally recognized symbol of enduring peace, the Battleship Missouri Memorial honors all veterans for their bravery, duty, and discipline.
