Forever Grateful: A Salute to America's Military Veterans

Just saw this on Facebook. Scott Farb, formerly of the Museum of the Waxhaws, and Ken Corn are organizing a salute to America's veterans at the Waxhaw American Legion Post on November 12th from 10am to 5pm. From the description:
This day-long event will feature uniforms from every war the American Soldier has taken part in, from the French and Indian War to modern day. Reenactors in uniforms from different periods will enhance your visit to the exhibit. Photographs, helmets, equipment, weapons and war trophies will also be on display. Children who attend will receive a free souvenir package to take home from the event. The event will also feature streaming video shot by local resident Ken Corn, who served as an embedded photojournalist in Iraq.

For more information, please contact event organizers Scott Farb or Ken Corn via Facebook message. THIS is a free event, and we hope to see you here!
This event is open to all and sounds like an excellent way to celebrate America's veterans locally.
