Veteran of the Year Program submission forms are available here.

The Veterans Museum at Balboa Park honors the men and women who served their country in the U.S. Armed Forces and Wartime Merchant Marine by documenting their contributions and experiences and preserving their legacy for future generations through their individual stories.

If you're interested in telling your story whether it happened 50 years ago or last year, contact us! We want to tell the individual stories of all veterans!

Spirit of '45 is BACK!

Ladies and gentlemen, once again we are so proud to honor our World War II veterans and the Greatest Generation during our annual Spirit of '45 remembrance event, August 14! This event is precious to the museum, given our WWII veterans are becoming so few. Come hear the stories of an era long gone, but not forgotten! Through Spirit of '45 we hope to inspire and forever imprint upon future generations the courage, self-sacrifice, unity and service the WWII generation is best known for. Keynote for the event is RADM Len Hering (Navy Retired), and MC for the event is our own Bob Lawrence. Festivities start at 11 and will continue until 2 PM. For more information please contact Event Manager, Dan Demarco at 619-239-2300,, or at! We'll see you at the museum!
