Branson’s lavish resort, Chateau on the Lake, will be the venue once again for the 20th Anniversary Military Gala & Banquet, November 9, 2016 hosted by the POW Network.

Over its long running history, the military salute has honored veterans from all eras and highlighted unique military occupations, such as the Army Nurse Corps, Military Chaplains, Special Ops and Vietnam helicopter pilots. The theme this year is “those that have gone before us.”

The evening, patterned after a dining out, is open to the public. It starts at 5:00 pm with a cash bar cocktail hour and dancing by “Party to Go” owned by a United States Air Force Master Sergeant retired and his wife. Portraits are available through SwiftShots.

The main hall salute opens with traditional Posting of the Colors, a candlelight POW/MIA service, military toasts with wine on the tables, followed by dinner. Outdoor fireworks are scheduled for intermission. The 2nd half opens with a recognition of sponsors and then the presentation of annual awards. The evening salute ends with a unique tribute to the fallen. Dancing will close the evening out.

During the evening, birthdays for the Armed Forces will be recognized, and United States Marines will participate in the annual Marine Corps birthday celebration as the Corps turns 241 years old. Last year’s Commandants message reminded Marines that the “watch of the each Marine in not confined to the time he spends on active duty. It lasts as long as he is “proud to bear the title of United States Marine.” Attendees truly bear witness to that statement.

Members of the 4th Infantry (IVY) Division, several former Prisoner of War, and a group of veterans from North Dakota as well as a number of former special ops (Special Forces, Army Rangers, and Navy SEALs) will be attending.

Chateau on the Lake is located at 415 N State Hwy 265, Branson, MO. There are special room rates for Gala attendees available by calling the Chateau directly (417) 334-1161.
