On Monday, November 11, the Intrepid Museum paid tribute to those who have served our nation, reminding them that their commitment, sacrifice and will to protect our freedom is never taken for granted. Servicemen and women and former crew members of Intrepid, including 92-year-old World War II veteran Keith Butterfield, were in attendance at the Museum’s annual Veterans Day ceremony.

Remarks were made by Loree Sutton, M.D., Brigadier General (Retired), U.S. Army; Commissioner of the NYC Department of Veterans’ Services, James Hendon (Lieutenant Colonel, U.S. Army Reserve); Rear Admiral Charles W. Rock, Commander, Navy Region Mid-Atlantic; Ken Fisher, co-Chairman of the Museum; and Susan Marenoff-Zausner, President, Intrepid Museum.

Following the remarks, a commemorative wreath was laid in the Hudson River to honor of all United States veterans and former crew members of Intrepid.

The ceremony was broadcast on the Museum's Facebook page. Click below to view:
