The ceremony, free and open to the public, will feature keynote speaker Bonnie J. Dunbar, NASA astronaut, professor of aerospace engineering at Texas A&M, and former president and CEO of the Museum of Flight. Reverend Bear Ride, sister of astronaut Sally Ride, will deliver the invocation with the Marine Band San Diego and Marine Corps Recruit Depot Color Guard.
