Group helping vets visit memorial

Posted In: City News by BroadcastBranson.com


A local organization is doing their part to help World War II veterans visit a Washington D.C. memorial.

On June 6, members of the Military Order of Purple Heart, Chapter 784 in Forsyth will be selling ice cream outside the Walmart Supercenter in Branson.  Profits from the sale of ice cream will be donated to Honor Flight, a national non-profit organization.

“One of our members , his dad actually got to go on one of these flights,” said Mike Womack, commander of the local chapter.  “This is probably the last opportunity they are going to get to see the memorial.”

Honor Flight has five hubs in Missouri which provide World War II veterans the opportunity to visit  the World War II Memorial in Washington D.C.  The organization offers the trips free of charge.

Honor Flight provides free airfare and lodging for veterans, as well as medical assistance during the visit, if necessary.  Womack said with the five hubs in Missouri, the local chapter can guarantee their money stays closer to home.

The first Honor Flight, held in 2005, took 137 World War II veterans to visit their memorial.  Womack reported that in 2008, Honor Flight provided more than 11,000 veterans an opportunity to visit the memorial.

Members of the Military Order of Purple Heart are veterans from all branches of the service, and all wars, that sustained injuries due to combat with an armed opponent.

The only thing bigger than the 2,800 scoops of ice cream given away during the recent Free Cone Day by Ben & Jerry’s Scoop Shop of Branson were the notes sung by local members of Missouri Kids, a division of American Kids, the nation’s only little league of entertainers.

Young performers took the outdoor “stage” between Ben & Jerry’s and Shorty Small’s on the deck of the marina at Branson Landing and entertained the crowds of people either waiting in line for or enjoying their free scoop of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream. In the process more than $250 were raised to help the nonprofit purchase a portable sound system for performances at various locations such as retirement homes and other community events.

“Basically, Free Cone Day is our birthday party, but we like to share the presents. The celebration is more than just a chance to get a free scoop. It is also an opportunity to involve the community at large to demonstrate the company’s commitment to giving back,” said Brandon Karn, owner of the Branson Ben & Jerry’s Scoop Shop. In addition to Missouri Kids, the non-profit Tri-Lakes Humane Society also participated and raised approximately $250 also.

Missouri Kids will again be performing at the Ben & Jerry’s location for Missouri Kids Show Daze on June 11 and July 14 and 16 will feature local young entertainers in 20 minute shows 1-3 p.m. A portion of the proceeds from ice cream sales during the two-hour periods will be donated to American Kids Inc. Plans are in the works for more performances by invitation of Shorty Small’s and Ben & Jerry’s.
