Honoring Veterans

On the eve of Veteran’s Day, The National World War II Museum presented a new tradition in a salute to the men and women who have and continue to dedicate their lives to our freedom. To honor the men and women who have served our country, special admission prices were offered to veterans and active-duty servicemembers.

That night for the annual “Victory Ball,” sponsors and patrons received early event entry and exclusive access to the Patron Party, which featured a cocktail reception and passed hors d’oeuvres, lounge seating, a private full bar and entertainment.

The lavish reception echoed the 1940s with vintage decor. Culinary creations by chef Eric Cook and The American Sector Restaurant + Bar included a farm-to-table section featuring a whole suckling pig, Louisiana shrimp and grits, braised short ribs and pasta options. Featured beverage bars provided by Republic National Distributing Company included signature cocktails, including a Sailor Jerry cocktail and Peychaud’s Aperitivo signature cocktail.

The Victory Swing Orchestra and The Victory Belles performed throughout the program.

Bill and Maureen Detweiler served as Event Co-Chairs; Ray and Jessica Brandt were Presenting Sponsors; and Madlyn and Paul Hilliard were the Valiant Veteran Sponsors.

Proceeds from “Victory Ball” support ongoing preservation efforts and public programming at The National WWII Museum.
