Veterans Village Honors WWII Veterans
WWII Veterans will be honored in the Veterans Village Day Room in the Ballparks of America Complex, 500 Pat Nash, Building 1, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Monday Nov. 6, to honor World War II veterans.

Throughout the day, WWII veterans will be interviewed, asked to share personal stories and will be photographed as at 1:30 p.m. WWII vets will also be asked to sing during Day Room festivities.

This will be the third year for the Day Room WWII celebration. A dozen WWII vets attended the first day room celebration. Eighteen were honored during the 2016 Dayroom recognition.

“Several family members and WWII vets noticed there was not a reunion or gathering for those brave souls,” 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. They deserve our respect and gratitude.”

The veterans attend the event with spouses, friends and family members. Some come in wheelchairs or with walkers, but it doesn’t dampen their spirits or keep them from sharing their stories or join the live music sing-alongs.

The Branson Veterans Task Force (BVTF) marks 2017 as its 12th hosting Veterans Village. It has been a gathering place for veterans and their families since. Veterans Village also includes a Vendor Village and Mess Hall during Veterans Homecoming week, Nov. 5-10. Veterans Village and Day Room hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., with the exception of Saturday when hours will be 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Call 417-337-8387 or email bvtf-mo@hotmail.com.
