During the day from 10 AM to 4 PM, students from Memphis City Schools, Shelby County Schools and midshipmen from the University of Memphis, along with a large group of Navy Delayed Entry Program candidates, will have the opportunity to view front-line Navy and Coast Guard aircraft and talk to the crews about the aircraft missions and about how to become involved in Naval Aviation. Recruiters from the Navy Talent Acquisition Force will be available with promotional material. Vintage aircraft will also be available for viewing. Attendance is FREE.  If you, your high school or middle school is interested and/or has questions about this event, please email This email address is being protected from spambots.

For the evening, citizens and business leaders will celebrate and salute our local Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard active duty men and women.  A military-uniformed sword arch from the University of Memphis Naval ROTC will provide a formal entrance for those attending our Wine Under Wings event. Later, our Millington Sea Cadet unit will smartly present colors to kick off the brief awards program portion of the evening. The local Memphis Knights will provide "big band" background music while guests may try tasty hors d'eouvres and sample dozens of great wines in the presence of vintage and military aircraft. Local treasures will be offered in a high-quality silent auction which benefits the Navy League Scholarship Fund and Memphis Sea Service Units.

Local business leaders, citizens, and military from the area Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard commands are invited to attend the festivities. Active-duty Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard personnel in uniform & guest are complimentary when calling to make a reservation at 901-683-5350 or by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots.
