Take Me Home Huey will be at LZ Maryland on Sunday June 19th. LZ Maryland is a weekend event that will honor Vietnam veterans as they gather together with family, friends, and a grateful public. “LZ” is for “landing zone,” a place of safety. It’s fitting that we salute Maryland’s Vietnam-era veterans here where their roots are planted. Those in conflict knew that an LZ was a safe, clear, and ready place for helicopters to land without harm. MPT will make LZ Maryland reflect the same safety.
Admission is free for veterans, active duty military, gold star families and children 12 and under. All other guests pay only a $5 entry fee for the entire weekend.
Take Me Home Huey will be on exhibit outside the Henry Ford during the Museum’s Salute To America Program June 30 thru July 4.
