Meet and talk with the Veterans of our Greatest Generation.
This half-day event takes place Saturday May 19 -- on Armed Forces Day -- and is organized by volunteers at the Pacific Coast Air Museum (PCAM). It honors our Veterans and provides a forum for all to learn about the Veteran’s experience. Many of them have already been interviewed for the Library of Congress archives by the PCAM Oral History Team for the benefit of the PCAM Education Program.

Talk With the Heroes of the '40s and '50s
Learn about the events that shaped our world from the men and women who were there.

This day is specially designed for young people to meet with some of America’s Greatest Generation, our Veterans of World War II and the Korean War, as we honor their service to our country.

Students and anyone else will be able to speak directly with local Veterans who were pilots, navigators, paratroopers, ship's gunners, bomber gunners, decipher specialists, WAVES, radio operators, and map interpreters.

Some of them flew P-47 Thunderbolts, P-51 Mustangs, B-17 Flying Fortresses, P-38 Lightnings, TBM Avengers, B-24 Liberators, and T-33 Shooting Stars. We are adding more all the time.
