Veterans Day Salute @ Earl and Rachel Smith Strand Theatre

This Veterans Day the Big Chicken Chorus, the Marietta Daily Journal, and The Strand have come together to present a program celebrating and honoring the members of our armed forces.

The program will feature:
A patriotic barbershop music concert by the Marietta chapter of the national Barbershop Harmony Society, the Big Chicken Chorus.
A film screening of The Marietta Daily Journal’s “Memories of War” documentary featuring interviews with local World War II veterans giving their invaluable testimony of the war and their place in it.
A live Q&A talkback with local WWII veterans. Patrons will get a rare opportunity to hear experiences from before, during, and after the war directly from those who lived it.

Colonel Patrick E. Campbell, commander of the 94th Operations Group at Dobbins Air Reserve Base, will be the Master of Ceremonies for the Veterans Day Salute program. A celebration of our veterans and an invaluable insight into the second world war from those who experienced it first hand, this event is a must-see for any supporters of the men and women who gave everything for their country and anyone with an interest in WWII history.

Patrons will also have the opportunity to purchase a VIP experience which includes a ticket to the Veterans Day Salute program, a DVD copy of the “Memories of War” documentary and a 4th floor reception prior to the program.
