May 15-- May 15--Stories of honor and action of veterans will be shared during a ceremony at the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force this week.

A ceremony will take place near the museum's main entrance at 11 a.m. Thursday, according to a release from the Air Force Museum Foundation. The event will take place in front of the Legacy Data Plates on the Wall of Honor.

Each of the more than 1,300 "aviation-grade" stainless steel plates on the wall represent a story that serves as a unique and enduring tribute to someone.
