The Winona VFW will have some special activities during Steamboat Days on Saturday, June 14th.
As part of "Show Your Ride" they will have several displays located outside the VFW on Third St and in their parking lot on Market St for the public to enjoy.
The displays include: Vietnam Mobile Riverine Force travelling museum and memorial, 5 restored military vehicles representing wars from WWII through Vietnam and a display of MN National Guard military vehicles and the MN National Guard rock climbing wall. There will also be military recruiters on site and information on VFW and their auxiliaries memberships.
In addition, they will showcase "Military Honor Plates.", a creation of two life long friends. Since 9-11 they have honored military service members and focused on collecting their license plates. Their goal is to learn the story of each veterans plate that is on the wall and to publish those stores to honor them and all veterans.
