Corvettes and Veterans

Nov. 11, 2023 8 a.m.

“Corvettes and Veterans” is being planned as a wonderful community and public event for everyone this Veterans Day, November 11, 2023, to honor ALL Veterans, and to also acknowledge the 75th Anniversary of War Memorial Stadium (as it was originally intended), to be a living, breathing, War Memorial for the future…honoring ALL those who served in the “Great Wars of World War I and World War II.”

      This event will also celebrate the 70th Anniversary of the Chevy Corvette, an iconic automobile brand classification, which is also known as a small, lethal, military classification of combatant warship dating back to the French Navy in the 1670s!

      This event is being planned to include numerous family-friendly events and activities for the entire public to include: a procession parade of custom “one-of-a-kind” military-styled corvettes; an “Official Salute and Ceremony” with presentations of colors honoring ALL Veterans and their families; special performances of state-wide High School Junior ROTC Teams; historical military displays from Camp Joseph T. Robinson; as well as other educational and historical displays; along with various other types of military support and related displays.

      History and educational displays from around the state will be staged inside along the stadium concourses, and vendor concessions will have all types of food and refreshments. A huge turnout is expected at this great family-friendly event!
