So What Is This About?

In celebration of Fleet Week Hampton Roads, Nauticus has created a special 24-foot tribute wall entitled "A Note to Our Troops." Located on the riverfront deck surrounding the Battleship Wisconsin, the wall will be available daily (weather permitting) from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. through November 23, for visitors to write a note of gratitude or appreciation to our service men and women.

The messages will be photographed daily and some will be posted on the Nauticus website. In addition, the images of the notes will comprise a special photographic exhibit that will be available for viewing beginning Friday, November 11 (Veterans Day). All service members and their families will receive free admission to Nauticus that day to view the exhibit.


Free and open to the public. Any visitors to the waterfront are encouraged to write a message of gratitude or appreciation to those men and women serving in the armed forces.
