Battle Of The Bulge 2018

bb4On Saturday, January 27, 2018, we had nine veterans from Kansas who were involved in the “Battle Of The Bulge“. We have hosted this event for several years now.

The Battle of the Bulge was from December 16, 1945 until January 25, 1945. It was the last major German offensive campaign on the Western Front during World War II.

You never get tired of listening to the veterans stories. They have experienced things you could never imagine. Some stories are really funny, but there are also so many sad stories. It is especially interesting to hear these stories from the veterans themselves.

As you can see by the pictures these veterans are getting up in the years. Most are in their 90′s and we have one who is turning 100 this year.

Our director, Barry Maples, gave each of the veterans a coin from the American Legion Riders.
