This year the Branson Veterans Task Force introduces four new mini reunions during Veterans Week, November 5 – 11. The Korean War Reunion has long been a favorite event for Korean War veterans.
The WWII Reunion will be held at the Keeter Center at the College of the Ozarks from 2:00-5:00pm on Friday, November 6. All WWII veterans and all interested in WWII history are invited to attend.
Earlier this year, the College of the Ozarks partnered with The Greatest Generations Foundation to send 20 students with 10 veterans to the 65th Anniversary of the Normandy Invasion. Tim Davis, founder of The Greatest Generations Foundation, and several of the veterans and students involved will discuss the trip during the reunion presentation. A screening of the Normandy trip documentary will highlight the event. Authors of WWII-related stories will sign copies of their books.
The College will open a Gallery exhibit of photographs from the trip and WWII artifacts. The Special Forces A Team will host a static display of ODA Equipment on site. ODA will brief on missions, training and equipment.
All activities are open to the public. To help with planning, please RSVP to the Branson Veterans Task Force at 417.337.8387.
