Veterans Village Day Room Honors WWII Veterans

The Veterans Day Room in the Ballparks of America Complex, 4562 North Gretna Road, will honor World War II veterans on Sunday, Nov. 6.

“I received several calls last year from people asking me about WWII events,” said BVTF Chairperson Brenda Meadows. “They said they had looked online and through the Bugle, but didn’t see anything. So I spoke with Day Room committee members and we designated one day to dedicate to honoring them.”

Although there was no time to publish or advertise the special WWII Veterans Day, more than a dozen WWII veterans came to be recognized.

“It was so amazing and the stories were heartwarming. We decided to do it again, but announce it sooner,” Meadows said. “They deserve our respect and gratitude. “

Throughout the day, WWII veterans will be photographed, interviewed and asked to share their stories. A group photo of the WWII vets will be taken at 1:30 p.m.

The Branson Veterans Task Force (BVTF) marks its 11th year hosting the Day Room in Veterans Village. It has been a gathering place for veterans and their families since 2006. Veterans Village also includes a Vendor Village and Mess Hall Nov. 5-10, during Veterans Homecoming week. Day Room hours are 9 am to 4 p.m., with the exception of Saturday when hours will be 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Call 417-337-8387.
