On August 26th and 27th, the city of Tuscaloosa will show appreciation for past military personnel at Alabama’s Veterans Reunion. If you have a family member or close friend who served in the military, you understand that they might not get the support and honor deserved. While heartbreaking, you have an opportunity to participate in an incredible event that will help educate others while turning a wrong into a right.
At this time, events for the itinerary are still being worked out, but there is an excellent proposal in place.
- Tuscaloosa Veteran’s Honor Walk – Starting at 10 a.m. at Tuscaloosa Veteran Medical on Loop Road, veterans, along with family and friends, get to take the first honor walk.
- Veteran’s Appreciation Day – Hosted by Mercedes-Benz US International, this part of the day begins at 11 a.m. and ends at 1 p.m., also at Tuscaloosa Veteran Medical. There will be incredible music thanks to Lauren Brooke, one of the city’s newest performing artists, and the 151st Army Band. However, you and your guests will also be treated to lunch and drinks provided by Pepsi, Buffalo Rock, and Chick-Fil-A. There will also be exhibits of both municipal and military vehicles, and information on civilians and veterans. There will even activities for the kids, including inflatables brought in by Home Depot.
- Veteran’s Appreciation and Awards Dinner – Presented by Bama by Distance, this event starts at 5 p.m. and will be held at the NorthRiver Yacht Club, located at 3100 Yacht Clube Way NE. The admission fee is only $35 per person and $60 for couples. Along with a full-service dinner, you can enjoy a cash bar and guest speaker Nimrod Frazer.
- Although the itinerary for the 27th has not yet been released, it will also be packed with incredible activities.
- Statue Honoring – Although it is not directly connected to the Veterans Reunion, this worthwhile event also supports past military personnel. On Aug. 28 at 5 p.m., you can head to the Montgomery Union Station for the honoring of the Legacy of Alabama World War I Soldiers status. This dedication is something that you really do not want to miss. The magnificent bronze statue depicts a Rainbow Solider. Designed and made by James Butler, a British sculptor, the statue focuses on the Rainbow Division of the 167th U.S. Infantry Regiment who fought during World War I.
