Plans Underway for 2021 Veterans Week

Branson, MO (March 31, 2021) – Anyone who spends time in or around Branson knows that Veterans Week, Nov. 5–11, is an important week of honoring local veterans as well as the many who gather for the special events held each year. While the approach of spring weather is foremost in many people’s minds right now, it’s not too early to begin planning for a successful and special time next fall.

A listing of dates and special events is already in place at and is updated regularly as new performances, celebrations, and memorial services are added. It’s also the time to consider volunteering or sponsoring an event; information for doing so is on the site as well.  

For POW/MIA families, the pain and wondering never goes away regardless of the time of year. P.O.W. Network, which works year-round to aid and resource those families, will again host a remembrance service this year. The Network is also looking forward to celebrating the 25th Annual Military Gala and Banquet, highlighting the 100th anniversary of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, on Nov. 9, 2021. A variety of sponsorship levels are available; for information, visit, or call Mary Schantag, chairman, at 417-336-4232.
