Celebrate Veteran’s Day with Cornell NorCal! Join Cornell alumni, family, and friends for a private tour of the USS Hornet, an aircraft carrier that participated in both World War II and the Apollo 11 space mission. The tour will be led by a veteran and will include stops in the engine room, navigation deck, crew barracks, and mobile quarantine facility. The tour is appropriate for all ages.
After the tour, those who are interested will head down the street to Rock Wall Winery and Scolaris for lunch and a glass of wine.
