The Hampton Inn offers free breakfast buffet for guests. No restaurant in hotel, but several restaurants in shopping mall across road and an Outback Steakhouse a few blocks away.
Joe said the actual sign on the highway is covered with a tarp and we will not be able to take photos at the actual sign due to safety and traffic concerns, but we will be able to take photos after the ceremony at a mock up at the museum. We are currently planning to at least take a group shot with our guidon and banner with the highway sign. Joe is expecting about 50 people at the ceremony, including about 25 6994th vets plus some guests and some local officials for a total of about 50 people.
If you are considering going at the last minute, please contact Joe and let him know of your intentions so he can make sure there is enough food at lunch.
