The Historical Society of Palm Beach County will welcome the troops to the Richard and Pat Johnson Palm Beach County History Museum in West Palm Beach for Armed Forces Day on May 18.
The free event will entertain and inform all ages and will honor local U.S. Armed Forces, veterans and the nation’s military history. Visitors will learn about the county’s role in past wars and its local battle sites.
To help guests interpret Armed Forces Day at the museum, docents will lead them through an authentic front-line camp, to interact with characters from the Seminole War to the Vietnam War, and to inspect Army vehicles. Cards also can be decorated to be mailed to soldiers overseas.
Twin food trucks will be onsite for lunch, and guests can picnic on the grounds of the museum. Doors open at 10 a.m.
