Military vehicles and a helicopter will be on the grounds to view.  Veterans are invited to bring photos from their service and family members may also bring photos of military family members who cannot be present or who have passed away to include in a display at the Smokehouse Gallery for that day only.  Artifacts from past conflicts may be included in the Smokehouse Gallery as well. The various branches of the US military will be recognized. At last year’s event, the Army was most represented. Awards will also be given. 

There will be a share time for veterans and families of those service people who are no longer with us to tell stories that they have either experienced or been told. Refreshments will be served.

Whippoorwill Academy and Village is a non-profit village that celebrates local history, the arts and the talented and brave people from our area.american flag
