Military Services Day

Saturday, Sep. 29, 11 a.m.–3 p.m.

Help honor the service and sacrifice of North Carolinians who served during World War I.

September 29 marks the 100 year anniversary of "Breaking the Hindenburg Line," an assault during World War I that took more North Carolinian lives than any other battle during the war.

Wake and District, Raleigh’s Bagpipe and Drum Band will perform, and representatives from the Veterans History Project will be on-site, along with displays from the USO (United Service Organizations) and American Red Cross, the North Carolina Department of Natural and Cultural Resources, and North Carolina State University’s College of Education. A mobile unit of the North Carolina National Guard Museum will display relevant artifacts from their collections and a WWI Service Card search station will round out the day.

The event will also include a raffle, open to families of all active and retired military members in attendance.

All families of active and retired military members are eligible for $10 off Museum memberships and 20 percent off purchases at the Museum Shop.

Major supporters of the exhibit North Carolina and World War I are the NC Museum of History Foundation and MOHA, the Museum of History Associates.
