The Vandalia American Legion will host an Armed Forces Day Celebration this weekend. Brad Brannon and George Meseke were guests on the Morning Café with Dan Michel to discuss the programs for this weekend. Brad Brannon says they will have their military equipment on display, along with equipment coming from all over the region to be part of their parade this Saturday. And, he says they will have a very special Veteran as part of the Parade.
The parade will be held at 11 am on Saturday, along with activities throughout the day on Saturday and Sunday-with a short program at the flag pole at the Legion on Saturday at 9 am and a representative of the Illinois Department of Veterans Affairs will have a representative on site for consultation of VA benefits. They will also have a display of military vehicles, weapons and equipment outside and inside the legion on both days. We will hear more on the program coming up tomorrow during NewsCenter.
