The public is invited to attend an Armed Forces Day celebration, beginning at 11:00am Saturday, May 20, 2017.

The celebration will be held at the Shoreline City Hall, located at 17500 Midvale Avenue N in Shoreline.

A new stone marker for the Veterans Recognition Plaza has been installed and will be dedicated. The Plaza is on the north lawn of City Hall.

Attendees will hear a talk about the Tuskegee Airmen. These African-American pilots served when the US military was segregated. As fighter pilots, they flew about 1,500 missions during WW II and became known as the Red Tails.

They received the Congressional Medal of Honor for sinking a German warship. Karen Robinson, daughter of the late Leroy Robinson who was one of the Tuskegee Airmen, will speak on The Tuskegee Airmen and their Foundation.
