 VETS FOR VETS AT THE MANSION

New 1 p.m. time for Vets for Vets Celebration
Yakov will once again join the 2019 Branson Veterans Task Force “Vets for Vets Celebration Show,” which starts at 1 p.m. on Nov. 5 in the Mansion Theater, 189 Expressway Lane. Theater doors will open at noon. 
 
The Branson Veterans Task Force (BVTF) received many requests for Yakov to return to the Vets for Vets stage after his appearance last year. Chairperson Brenda Meadows asked Yakov, who has entertained veterans and troops stateside and abroad, to come back this year. He replied, “We will be there.”  
 
Vets for Vets is designed as a USO-style production. It is made up of active duty military or veterans that are entertainers, and includes former United Service Organization (USO) alumni. 
 
The show celebrates its eighth year in Branson and its third year sponsored by Branson's IMAX Entertainment Complex. 
Paul Bluto, Branson's IMAX Entertainment Complex owner,  has attended the show faithfully, even celebrating his 90th birthday last year.
 
This will be the second year for Built Right, LLC will be a sponsor. 
Sons of the Silver Dollar will join familiar faces on the Vets for Vets docket. Barbara Fairchild with Roy Morris, The Bretts, Brandon and Megan Mabe of the Baldknobbers, George Dyer, Gordy and Debbie, Negdra Culp’s Salute to Aretha, Dancer Vietnam Vet Norvin Breek, Army Veteran Janice Martin, The Golden Sounds of the Platters with Vietnam Veteran Eddie Stovall and others.
 
“Only in America would this be possible,” said Yakov. “That a Russian could become an American, and ‘Make America Laugh Again’! What A Country!”
 
Vets for Vets is a free show for vets and their families. No tickets are issued and seating is on a first come basis. It is one of several events that serve to kick off Veterans Homecoming Week, Nov. 5-11. A donation for the Branson Veterans Task Force (a 501c organization,  bransonveterans.com) will be received.
 
Call 417-337-8387 or email bvtf-mo@hotmail.com.
