Veterans of Oakland

These individuals and their service help tell the history of the U.S.A. and our nation’s relationship to the world.
This tour starts at the Front Gate (main entrance at Oakland Avenue and MLK Jr. Drive) at 10:30 AM. Please arrive a few minutes early to check in at the volunteer desk inside the Visitor Center (located across from the Front Gate) before meeting at the Front Gate.
