Today, more than one million visitors pass through the Museum each year and many begin their visit in the theater viewing our film The Story of Intrepid. The names on the seats are also seen by innumerable special guests who attend speaker series and other high-profile events at the Museum.
Each Seat of Honor has its own story to tell. To visitors and future generations, these seat inscriptions will serve as a continual reminder of the importance of duty, sacrifice and of your hero’s individual service.
