Celebrate a Home Front Holiday at the Silent Wings Museum on Saturday, December 17, 2022 from 1-3 P.M. Museum admission fees apply.

Holidays on the Home Front is an opportunity to create memories with family in a unique setting. Despite rationing, separation from loved ones, and long hours working in the defense industry, Americans on the Home Front during World War II honored holiday traditions with family and friends.

Activities in the Hangar Gallery include:

Popsicle stick ornaments
Mini flower pot bells
Tissue paper collages
Gingerbread cookie decorating
While the youngsters are making a special gift for a loved one, check out our featured exhibit, A Legacy Remembered, honoring the perseverance and determination of the American Glider Pilot both at the inception of their service and decades later to make sure their story would live on.

Discover how South Plains Army Air Field fulfilled its unique mission with the support of the Lubbock community and how veteran Glider Pilots restored the CG-4A glider as a shining symbol of their service.
