This weekend, April 22-24, 2010, my dear friends at www.Branson.com are producing the Second Annual ‘Hand in Hand: Branson Honors Purple Heart Recipients', an event to recognize and commemorate those men and women whom have earned the Purple Heart for receiving wounds during combat.
The weekend includes fun events such as a live music showcase with celebrities and other favorite Branson entertainers, a fishing tournament with professional anglers leading Purple Heart Recipients, a follow-up Fish Fry (with all of the trimmings-YUM!), a specially designed shopping excursion, an emotionally charged parade in the downtown Branson Landing area, a Motorcycle Run and a unique tribute honoring Purple Heart recipients during the “Missouri Wine and Food Festival” at the five-star hotel, Chateau on the Lake.
As fun as these events are , there is also an important opportunity for Recipients and their families to speak with a panel of experts from Military Order of the Purple Heart, represented by National Commander Jim Sims, and others. Topics will include 'How to Obtain Your Benefits.' Specific questions and concerns will also be addressed.
Stay well! Keep fighting! Sean
