Upcoming rally to provide fellowship, honor veterans for service

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Despite the large military community that exists in the Columbus area, there is a large contingency of veterans who feel they have been forgotten.

The upcoming First Annual Veterans and Patriots Rally of Columbus and surrounding areas plans to remedy that by recognizing veterans for their services.

The rally will take place on October 4 at the VFW 665, located at 1855 Victory Drive in Columbus.

Free entertainment will begin at 4:30 p.m. followed by a program to discuss the needs and concerns of veterans and their families throughout the Second Congressional District. Additionally, there will be a tribute to honor those who have served our country from World War II to the present day.

Among those expected to attend are the Veteran Affairs Office of Georgia, the 3rd District American Legion, and many more.
