The New England Air Museum will hold its annual Veterans Day program. Visitors to the Air Museum will have the opportunity to meet and talk one-on-one with veterans of World War II, Korea, Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan.

They can tour the Museum's three hangars with its extensive collection of vintage including many military aircraft.

They will also have the chance to sit in the cockpits of a number of combat aircraft. At 1 p.m. there will be a chance to meet 8th Air Force B17 pilot William Purple, who flew the leac aircraft in a 1945 raid on Berlin.

The museum will also be collecting personal care items like razors, feminine hygiene products, toothpaste, etc. to send overseas to troops. In keeping with the spirit of the day, veterans will receive a 10% admission discount. Active duty military will receive 20% off.
