Veteran’s Recognition Luncheon


Since the Festival’s inaugural year in 2011,we have kicked-off the event with a special invitation-only luncheon celebrating the Jeep stories told by Butler County’s veterans.  In 2011, 24 World War II veterans shared their memories and in 2012, we heard amazing tales from 12 Korean War veterans.  In 2013, we honored Vietnam War veterans.

We are currently seeking Jeep stories from any Veteran.  The stories need to be connected to the Veteran’s service in the military and the veteran should be available to attend a luncheon in Butler on June 3 if the story is selected.  Please refer to this 2014 vets lunch flyer for instructions.  The deadline to submit stories is April 30, 2014.

Below are the booklets that were created.  Feel free to take a few minutes read these amazing Jeep stories as shared by our veterans.
