Hangar 25 Air Museum will remember and honor those who served their country at an ice cream social from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday and revealing a new exhibit â€” Hangar History: A Flight Through Time.
â€śThis is going to be an opportunity to do something fun and honor veterans at the same time,â€ť Genevieve Stockburger, museum administrator, said.
The event is open to the entire community.
â€śToo often, Veterans Day is overlooked and this is a time to recognize the military history of the community,â€ť Stockburger said.
During the ice cream social, the public will be able to view for the first time a timeline of Webb Air Force Base, the bombardier school and reconstruction project of Hangar 25.
â€śI did a sneak-preview during the Webb Air Force Base Reunion with intentions of doing a full exhibit,â€ť Stockburger said. â€śI intend this to be the first in a series of exhibits accentuating different time periods of the hangarâ€™s history.â€ť
As always, admission to the museum is free, but donations are accepted. Hangar 25 is located at 1911 Apron Drive.
