This new Veterans Marketplace area will be located adjacent to the Legends and Heroes Autograph Tent. The treasured Legends and Heroes Autograph Tent will be returning. At the autograph tent, guests can meet aviation and military legends and heroes. Throughout the day, flying aces, decorated war heroes, veterans, and special guests will be present to sign autographs. Many of these living legends will also offer for sale copies of their autobiographies and other memorabilia.
