DAYTON | The public is invited - first-come, first-served - to attend 
President Bush's speech Friday at the dedication of a new wing of the 
U.S. Air Force Museum. But you must have a ticket.

The White House and local planners announced Monday that a limited 
number of free tickets can be obtained by visiting the museum at 
Wright-Patterson Air Force Base or Memorial Hall, 125 E. First St., 
10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. starting today and, if supplies remain, 9 a.m. 
to 5 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday.

Individuals picking up tickets will have to sign for them and should 
be prepared to show photo ID. No large-group or large quantity 
requests will be accommodated.

Bush is to speak about noon on the museum grounds. Gates will open at 
9 a.m. Ticket holders should arrive via Gate 28-B, off Springfield 
Pike, and follow the signs. Attendees will have to go through a metal 
detector at the event area.

Tickets can also be obtained by contacting:

* U.S. Rep. David Hobson's Springfield office, (937) 325-0474.

* U.S. Rep. Mike Turner's campaign office, (937) 222-7749.

* U.S. Rep. John Boehner's office, (800) 582-1001.

available Monday night.
