Volunteers Needed! Welcome WWII Veterans to New Orleans April 13-14
Help us welcome a very special group of WWII veterans from Los Angeles, CA and Phoenix, AZ flying down with Soaring Valor to New Orleans this April 13-14. The veterans visiting will represent all service branches, and for many of these men and women it will be their first time in New Orleans and their first time seeing our nation’s tribute to their sacrifices.
Come out to any of these three opportunities to welcome our nation’s WWII veterans:
- Welcoming the Veterans at the Hyatt Regency on Wednesday, April 13 at 4:30 pm
Join us inside the lobby at the Hyatt Regency at 601 Loyola Avenue in Downtown New Orleans to welcome the veterans as they arrive to their hotel.
- Welcoming the Veterans to The National WWII Museum in front of the The American Sector Restaurant + Bar on Wednesday, April 13 at 6:30 pm
Help us give these veterans a grand welcome as they step foot on the Museum grounds for the first time for a special dinner in their honor.
- Welcome the Veterans for their day exploring the Museum on Thursday, April 14 at 8:20 am
Meet us outside of The American Sector Restaurant + Bar to get the veterans’ day started with excitement as they begin their day of touring the Museum’s tributes to their sacrifices during World War II.
Please feel free to show your support in welcoming these veterans with patriotic posters, signs, and your New Orleans spirit! We hope to see you there for these very special moments!
