World War II veterans are older and fewer in number every day, and that is one big reason for a Memorial Day weekend event in Vinton. It’s a gathering of “Greatest Generation” veterans tomorrow at William Byrd High School, vets who will share many of their wartime experiences. Organizers hope younger people who attend might gain a fuller appreciation of the sacrifices made at a time when the liberty of many nations was threatened.
The event runs tomorrow from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm. It also includes displays and models of World War Two vehicles and aircraft. Click here for more program information.
