Bush to rededicate Intrepid
NEW YORK -- President Bush is making one of his last visits to New York City as chief executive to formally rededicate the Intrepid museum ship in a Veterans Day ceremony.
Thousands of visitors are expected to gather at the carrier's newly rebuilt pier on Manhattan's west side.
Bush will mingle with some 2,500 war veterans aboard the legendary World War II aircraft carrier. The ship was recently returned to its Hudson River site after a 19-month overhaul that added more planes to its aircraft collection and updated its museum displays.
Veterans Day is celebrated on Nov. 11 in honor of the anniversary of the signing of the Armistice that ended World War I - at the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month of 1918.
