The public is invited to a special Memorial Day weekend ceremony on Saturday, May 27 at the Branson Veterans Memorial Museum. As part of this event, the museum will dedicate the recently located Vietnam Huey UH-1C helicopter in honor of Vietnam Veterans. The U.S. Army will be on-site with a display comprised of an armored Hummer & 6×6 truck. Additionally, this event will also pay tribute to Branson First Responders including police, fire, and EMTs with a special showing of the Mercy EC 135 Eurocopter air ambulance that will fly in and land adjacent to the Huey.
All veterans, residents, visitors, and students are invited to this special event beginning at 9 am with coffee & donuts Saturday, May 27, located at 1250 W 76 Country Blvd. Opening ceremonies will begin at 11:45 am following a performance by the cast of Branson’s newest show, “All Hands on Deck,” at 11:30 am.
Earlier this year, the Branson Veterans Memorial Museum restored the Huey UH-1C upon its retirement from the 118th Thunderbird 3rd Platoon “Bandits” and relocated it to its permanent resting place in Branson.
This event is free to the public, and guests of all ages are invited to attend. The museum will be open for touring and learning more about the relics of the Vietnam War on display throughout. Guests speakers include city of Branson dignitaries and museum spokespeople will present throughout the morning until 2 pm. Food & beverages will be available for purchase from 9 am to 11:30 am.
