STILL SAYING THANK YOU AFTER ALL THESE YEARS

For nearly two decades Veterans Village has extended a warm “welcome home” to veterans and their families during Branson’s Homecoming Week at which time, tens of thousands of patriots receive an affectionate greeting at Veterans Village, Nov. 5-10, hosted by Branson Veterans Task Force (BVTF).

Its new location at 1000 Pat Nash Drive in the Ballparks of America Complex is a venue that allows the BVTF to offer a mess hall and entertaining dayroom. There is also a Vendor Village that provides a unique shopping experience for former and present day military personnel. Non-profit organizations with resources for veterans and their loved ones are also available. Shopping in ‘Vendor Village’ presents an opportunity for veterans to register for the many discounts Branson businesses offer them. It also provides veterans and their families a place to shop for relatable memorabilia, patches, hats, books, items of interest.

Traders returning to the venue consider it an opportunity to nurture friendships they have established throughout the years.

Army veteran Brenda Meadows, BVTF board chairperson, said the focus of the non-profit organization’s annual Veterans Village is to provide veterans the resources, connections and camaraderie they need.

“Veterans Village offers the friendship, atmosphere and products that help make these heroes of our freedom feel welcomed, appreciated and accepted.” Meadows said. “BVTF wants to make their ‘Welcome Home’ in Branson a special time to remember, as well as highlight Branson’s heartbeat toward honoring past, present and future military personnel.”

For more information or merchant spaces at Vendor Village call 417-337-8387 OR EMAIL bvtf-mo@hotmail.com.

There are several veterans on our board, which gives the BVTF more insight to the experiences and situations veterans, (stateside or in foreign countries, in peace time or war) might have gone through. With this personal information available to us, we can provide the answers veterans, local or visiting, ask.

One way we serve those who have served us is to provide them the resources they need.  If there is a reunion that needs a bugler, a chaplain, or a list of service groups, we will provide that information. Or call us to get directions to the VA clinic, information about the area, a way to connect with other veterans or just someone to talk with. If we don't know the answer to a question, we will find it and call you back. We are here for you!

Branson is a comfortable place where veterans feel appreciated. And that's another thing we do -- we appreciate you! As a matter of fact, Branson likes to be thought of the place where all veterans feel right at home. And coming here is a homecoming of sorts, which is why the BVTF is very actively involved in the annual November 5-11 Veterans Week, your "Welcome Home Week."

Make sure you give us a call or look us up when you come to Branson or if you are just thinking about visiting here.

Remember, we are "family" and Branson is "home."

The Branson Veterans Task Force is a 501 (c)(3) organization with a mission of recognizing veterans, fostering
patriotism and educating the community on the accomplishments and the history of our veterans.
Donations are tax-deductible to the full extent of the IRS rules and regulations.
