Special ceremony planned to honor veterans on USS Requin

Monday, May 20, 2013, 9:00 p.m.
 

The Carnegie Science Center will honor veterans during Memorial Day weekend with a ceremony on the USS Requin submarine. Veterans of the USS VI Requin Base will lead the ceremony, from 10 to 11 a.m. May 26.

Members of the Beaver County Stearman Association will perform a flyover with a vintage World War II-era biplane, and Requin vets will toll a bell for every submarine that has sunk and is on “eternal patrol.”

Guests are encouraged to watch the ceremony from the Ohio River shore. After the ceremony, the Requin, docked outside the North Side center, will be open for free tours throughout the day. Details: 412-237-3400 or www.carnegiesciencecenter.org
