SOS2017_FB_veterans.jpg

 

2017 Veterans roster is announced!

visit http://www.sosovms.com/Show-of-Shows-Special-Guests/ for their bios.

 

** Please Note **

(Managing expectations.) These veterans are attending of their own free will. They are not under contract. We are not holding any of their family members as hostages to ensure their participation. If they get up one day next week and decide that staying home with a warm cup of coffee and a basketball game on television is preferable to making the trek to Louisville.. then that's what they will do. At their age, frankly, I think they deserve a bit of deference. Every year there are a few who make that choice, and a few more who decide to join in at the last minute. If you come to the SOS (which you certainly should), come for the show, and visit with the veterans as a bonus. A really, really cool bonus.

Guys and gals - we have created a Facebook 'event'

 

http://www.facebook.com/events/635323793319667

 

If you are also on Facebook, and could share this on your page, I would greatly appreciate it. We want to spread the word far and wide, and I think that these days 'social media' is the way to make that happen.

 

However, we are by all means a very inclusive organization. For those who are not on the forums, have never heard of Facebook, and refuse to use email, etc., I printed out a few thousand mimeograph flyers, stuffed them into some old empty glass TAB soda bottles that I found at a garage sale, and chunked them in the Mississippi. Fingers crossed. But I'm thinking that sharing out the Facebook event will slightly more effective.

 

Thank you!!

The more I dig around, the more stuff I'm finding to bring! Should have some nice medals/medal groups and a couple nice uniforms this time around!

Safe travels to everyone.

 

Looks like we are going to be blessed with good weather....upper 50's/Low 60's for most of the week.

 

Much better than the freezing fog from years ago...!

Always interested in the 166th Infantry, 42nd Division, A.E.F.

Quality WW1 studio portraits and real photo postcards of Distinguished Service Cross recipients; showing steel helmets; or other interesting content.

Does anyone remember the Ice storm that hit Louisville back in 2009? that was a scene to come out to after spending the day in the show.

 

I've my flights and hotel booked since December and i'm looking forward to the show next week.

Just finished putting price tags on what I'm bringing. Almost everything is priced below what I paid for it (and I'm cheap) so I'm hoping it will sell...I'd rather not bring any of it back from the show (and note to those lurkers who might think I'm a "profit grubbing medal collector", I bought the medals for use in my posthumous Purple Heart book, photographed them, and am now passing them on at a loss...I think that's fair???)
