Veterans Day Celebration: November 11th, 2017

The General Patton Memorial Museum is honoring a special man this year, Mr. Robert Nobuo Izumi. Mr. Izumi served 60 years in the U.S. Armed Forces. He was deployed during World War II, Europe; Korea and Vietnam. He served in the U.S. Army, U.S. Air Force and the U.S. Marine Corp.

“Some things you never forget. I was shocked to see this little girl in an abandoned house. She was holding a sheet of stamps with Hitler’s head printed on them.”

-Robert Izumi

The Veterans Day Celebration is Free to the Public which includes the Admission Fees.

Veterans Day is a time to enjoy, celebrate, and honor our military from the Past to the Present. Join us this year in honoring Mr. Robert Izumi and the rest of our Military for their service to our Country.
