Armed Forces Day/Blue Star Salute Celebration at USS Alabama Battleship Memorial Park

May 16th 20206:30 a.m.- 1:00 p.m.

The Blue Star Salute Foundation Inc. and the South Alabama Veterans Council, with support of the City of Mobile and The USS ALABAMA Battleship Memorial Park, will hold Alabama’s 16th Annual Blue Star Salute Celebration on Saturday, 16 May 2020, Armed Forces Day, at the USS ALABAMA Battleship Memorial Park, 2703 Battleship Memorial Parkway (2703 Battleship Parkway, Mobile, AL 36603). At this event, we follow our motto of “Honoring Those Who Serve; Those Who Have Served; and Those Who Have Fallen In Military Service.” This is the eighth year that Mobile has hosted the state-wide celebration. It will be a day of honor for our Veterans. Many activities are planned throughout the day including activities for children. This event is open to the public at no charge. The 7th Annual Memorial 5K Run/Walk & 1 Mile Fun Run for Alabama's Fallen Heroes runs along the Causeway and starts and finishes at the USS ALABAMA Battleship Memorial Park. Each runner’s race bib will bear the name of one of Alabama’s Fallen Heroes since 9/11/01. You also have the opportunity to list your own Hero as well. This is the only race in this region of its kind. Growing every year, don’t miss the opportunity to show that you “will never forget” and run in Honor of one of Alabama’s Fallen Heroes. Show your appreciation for Alabama’s Veterans and their families by sponsoring and attending Alabama’s 16th Annual Blue Star Salute. There will be lots of activities throughout the day, including Static Displays of Military equipment, demonstrations, and activities for children.
