6th Annual Remembrance Day: Virtual Ceremony
Saturday, October 10, 2020
The Champaign Aviation Museum hosts the Annual Remembrance Day Ceremony to honor all U.S. Army Air Corps and U.S. Army Air Force Veterans who served in World War II. Relatives and friends can honor their service men by participating in the ceremony and indivudally reading aloud the Veteran's name and military service record. These names will be entered into the museum's Hall of Honor as a tribute to the WWII airmen and women who served. The Hall of Honor is a permanent part of the Champaign Aviation Museum and will fly with the
B-17 Champaign Lady wherever it goes.
This year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Remembrance Day Ceremony will be held virtually and broadcast live on YouTube to minimize the crowd size inside the museum. Friends and family members of USAAC & USAAF Veterans are invited to attend the ceremony at the museum and read the Veteran's military service record into the Hall of Honor. Face masks and 6' social distancing will be required. We ask that all audience members who aren't actively participating in the ceremony to please stay home and watch the live broadcast on YouTube. Print and complete the Remembrance Day Ceremony entry form and bring it with you to the museum the day of the event.
If you're unable to attend the ceremony and would like to honor a USAAC or USAAF Veteran, you can complete the form and mail it to the museum by October 7. We are proud to honor your Veteran on your behalf and enter their name into the Hall of Honor. Their names will not be forgotten.
