Veteran's day

The USS Yorktown Foundation announces a donation of $10,000 from the SunTrust Foundation to cover the cost of admission to Patriots Point Naval & Maritime Museum for all veterans on Veterans Day Weekend 2018.

SunTrust Foundation has given more than $40,000 in support of veterans at Patriots Point since 2015. In March, the foundation covered the cost for more than 300 Vietnam veterans to attend the museum’s Vietnam Veterans Day offerings.

“It’s a privilege to support Patriots Point Naval & Maritime Museum and their mission of preserving the history of our bravest men and women who have sacrificed so much for our country,” said SunTrust Bank’s Charleston Region President Mark Lattanzio. “The SunTrust Foundation is proud to make it possible for all veterans and their families to be admitted to Patriots Point free of charge. On behalf of all of my teammates at SunTrust Bank, we thank them for their service.”

Patriots Point Naval & Maritime Museum is an official Regional Site for the observance of Veterans Day. Admission will be waived for all veterans on Nov. 10 and 11.
