Kansas City Metro Veterans Salute 28 Sept. 2019


Recommended Posts

Each year the MId-Continent Public Library System Genealogy Library, 3440 S. Lee's Summit Road, Independence, MO holds a Veterans Salute to Kansas City area veterans. The library hosts indoor and outdoor displays and involves area active service personnel, veteran groups, museums and collector organizations. This year the theme will be homecoming.

As Vice President of the Kansas City Military Collectors Club (KCMCC) I will participate, along with other KCMCC members, in the public displays on the first floor of the library this weekend. The club has participated for several years and our club president, John Reichley, was the coordinator and master of ceremonies for this event last year.

We invite area readers to come see the displays and I will try to take a few pictures to post later.

Each year, for the past 25 years, the Mid-Continent Library Genealogy Center has put on a program called the Kansas City Veterans Salute. This "thank you for your service" homage to area military veterans includes various organizations such as: VFW, Marine Corps League, various reenact-or groups, etc. The VFW provides a military band, Hy-Vee catering provides a free lunch, and our group, KCMCC, provides collector displays.

The Kansas City Military Collector Club (KCMCC) has participated in this excellent program for years and is proud to help support the Veterans Salute. Below are some of the displays that we put on this weekend.

A few more US military items. Some club members displayed German and Japanese military collectibles as well. These are shown on a thread on our sister forum, WMF. The US Veteran uniforms and swords were mine.
