Yuma Military Appreciation Day

March 16 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

Yuma’s Military Appreciation Day (Y-MAD) returns to downtown Yuma.  An event for everyone, YMAD celebrates Yuma’s historic relationship with our armed forces – from river steamboats arriving at the Army’s Depot to Pattons WWII tank force training, to todays YPG facilities and   Marine Corps aviation.  Next to historic displays – Kids love the Marine’s EOD robots, K9 dogs – and equipment static displays from both YPG and MCAS.  In addition, Veterans and families in need or health, benefits, or short-term assistance are welcome as over 33 organizations have booth manned and ready to help you. Parents interested in youth leadership programs will find booths for several local groups – from Young Marines, Naval Sea Cadets, and Boy Scouts. A true one stop shop for the family!

Set up in true Yuma block party style – enjoy the DJ music, browse the displays and learn a little Yuma history as well.  Veterans – enjoy a free pancake breakfast at 9am and hot dog lunch at noon!  Event is Free to the public.  Opening Ceremonies are at 10am.  See you there.
