Veterans Activities

Veterans are an important part of EAA AirVenture Oshkosh, and the history of aviation in general — simply put, we couldn’t celebrate our annual event at all, if it hadn’t been for their service and sacrifice to our great nation. Whatever branch you served and in whatever capacity, EAA wants to honor you and celebrate your dedication to the cause of freedom over the years. To do this, EAA has designated the Friday of AirVenture as Salute to Veterans Day. This celebration includes a breakfast, parade, and an honor flight with Northeast Wisconsin’s Old Glory Honor Flight organization.

Veterans Breakfast

Friday at 8 a.m. at the Partner Resource Center

Veterans are invited to kick off the day-long Salute to Veterans with a complimentary breakfast at 8 a.m. at the Partner Resource Center located on Waukau Avenue just west of the intersection of Knapp Street Road. All veterans are invited to register themselves and one guest to enjoy hearty thank-you breakfast, made possible by American Airlines.

Reservations are required as space is limited.

A Salute to Veterans Parade

Friday at 1:45 p.m. at Warbird Alley to Boeing Plaza

The annual Parade of Veterans will take place on Friday, when all veterans in attendance are invited to meet in Warbird Alley at 1 p.m. for a special Warbirds in Review program, followed by assembly and parade departure at 1:45 p.m. The parade route will leave Warbird Alley and travel south along the flightline to Boeing Plaza, where there will be a special welcome ceremony, a group photo taken at 2 p.m., and the opening of the daily air show.

If you do not wish to march, you are encouraged to join the group on Boeing Plaza at 2:00 p.m.

Old Glory Yellow Ribbon Honor Flight

EAA is excited to announce the return of the Old Glory Honor Flight to AirVenture, which carries Vietnam veterans who have spent the day in Washington, D.C. touring war memorials and monuments.

The public is invited to honor the returning veterans at Boeing Plaza as they arrive on an American Airlines charter around 6 p.m. (as determined by weather conditions).
