November is National Veterans and Military Families Month and AARP is kicking off this special month by hosting an Appreciation Day for our service members and their families. We will have a recognition ceremony to honor members of the Montford Point Marines beginning promptly at 10:15am. There are several Montford Point Marines living in the New Orleans metro and Gulf Coast areas who are attending the recognition ceremony.
The ceremony will include remarks and tributes by special guests from 10:00am - 11 a.m. followed by a music performance by the Marine Forces Reserve Band. Lunch will be provided. Military and their families can also visit the nature interpretive center, walk the nature trail and attend a private showing in the Planetarium. At this special event, participants will have an opportunity to mingle with some of our Vet Partners, learn about resources, upcoming programming and how they can get involved.
