The St. Augustine Lighthouse & Maritime Museum will commemorate the 75th Anniversary of D-Day on Thursday, June 6, with special programs honoring the military. The ongoing programming will take place from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., with free admission for veterans and active U.S. military on this day.

The Museum will display “Field of Honor” signs on the front lawn of the Keepers’ House honoring friends and loved ones who have served. Donation is $50 per sign. To honor your loved one, please contact Tresa Calfee at [email protected] or call 904-829-0729, ext. 212.

Donations will go toward the upcoming permanent WWII exhibit, which will include items that relate to St. Augustine during World War II. The exhibit will display some of the 2,000 items currently housed in the Museum’s collection.

The collection also contains oral histories and photographs belonging to military personnel and residents in St. Augustine and North Florida region. These photographs and personal accounts bring to life the significance that the community played during World War II. For more information, visit staugustinelighthouse.org.
