Arnot Gallery Honors Our Vets During Fleet Week 2017

by on May 18, 2017

ARNOT GALLERY is honoring our Vets starting right now with a special discount off all purchases in our gallery through Fleet Week ending May 31st!
If you are a Vet let us know and you will receive a special one time discount on any one purchase from our gallery from now through May 31st, 2017.
It is our way to say ‘Thank you for your service to our country!’.
Herbert Arnot was a proud Bronze Star Vet in Military Intelligence during WWII.  It is in his memory that we salute all of our Vet’s.

If you are in NYC and would like to celebrate and honor our Vets here is the schedule for the festivities!

Now in its 29th year, FWNY is scheduled to take place May 24-30. The weeklong celebration is the city’s time-honored celebration of the sea services, and an unparalleled opportunity for the
citizens of New York and the surrounding tri-state area to meet Sailors, Marines and Coast Guardsmen, as well as witness firsthand the latest capabilities of today’s maritime services.
The event has been held nearly every year since 1984, and it is anticipated that nearly 5,000 Sailors, Marines and Coast Guardsmen will participate this year.  In addition to public visitation of participating ships, there will be numerous exhibits, military band concerts, and aviation demonstrations throughout the week showcasing the skilled expertise of our dedicated sea service members.

The theme for this year is “Celebrating the Sea Services and commemorating the 75th Anniversary of the Seabees.” For 75 years, members of the Naval Construction Forces, known as the Seabees, have repeatedly demonstrated their skills as fighters and builders, and while doing so, they have built and fought for freedom both in peace and in war time. The Seabees continue to play a crucial role in supporting the fleet while carrying out our Navy’s maritime strategy.
