Event Raises Money to Fly Older Veterans to Washington, D.C.

Our nation’s capital is home to many monuments and memorials honoring our brave men and women who protected and defended our Constitution.   Many of our older Veterans have yet to see them, especially since the World War II memorial opened to the public in 2004.

A wonderful way to thank our Veterans across America is giving them the opportunity to visit our memorials.  A non-profit named Vets Roll flies our World War II and Korean War Veteran veterans from Illinois and Wisconsin to Washington, D.C.  Joining our Veterans are “Rosie the Riveters” women factory workers who aided our war effort during World War II.

On April 14, Vets Roll hosts their Vets Roll Hangar Dance to raise money for transportation and accommodations for Veterans and “Rosie the Riveters” participating in this year’s trip.   The dancing will be at the Eclipse Center in Beloit, Wisconsin.  Join the fun from 1 pm to 10 pm.
