The immersive, virtual reality mobile display, built into an 18-wheeler truck, stops off in San Francisco after making its debut in Sacramento last weekend. Located at Marina Green, the display opens to the public from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. through Sunday, October 9. Navy staff will be on hand as well to answer questions and help visitors navigate the site.
