Branson Gives Tribute on Veterans Day
Veterans Day is a time to honor those who have served for their country, risking their own lives to defend the country's freedom and independence. It is a day to remember those who have fallen in the line of duty as well as to honor those in our presence and aboard with special recognition, moments of silence, and tributes. In Branson, Veterans Homecoming Week runs from November 5 through November 11 and features a range of excellent events that are perfect for celebrating the occasion.

You can partake in the Ride the Ducks Salute to Veterans Event.
