There are several activities open throughout the season that are of special interest to veterans. The Veteran’s Memorial Museum is home to over 2000 military artifacts and exhibits and features one of the largest bronze memorial statues in the county. The Keeter Center at the College of the Ozarks has an impressive military exhibit located in their front lobby.
Special veterans events are scheduled throughout the year, but perhaps the most significant is Veteran’s Week. Each November, Branson is the home of the largest Veteran’s Day celebration in the nation, bringing in over 50,000 veterans and their families from every branch of the United States Armed Forces.
Branson has welcomed and been a meeting place for Veterans and Veterans reunions for all branches of the military: Army, Air Force, Navy, Marine, Coast Guard, National Guard, Reserves, and Merchant Marines – active duty, inactive or retired. With its centralized location in America’s Midwest, Branson is the perfect location for military reunions, and it’s friendly and patriotic citizens will make every day feel like Veteran’s Day.
Our vacation specialists can help make arrangements for accommodations with a meeting room, a welcome reception or catered meal plus, group activities and travel assistance around town. You may even want to arrange a special ceremony or plan to have a group photo taken while you’re in Branson. Our staff can do it all or just lead you in the right direction!
