First 2014 World War II Veterans Luncheon scheduled

CROSSVILLE — The first luncheon of the new year honoring World War II veterans will be at 11 a.m. Friday, Feb. 28, at Shoney's Restaurant in Crossville. These gatherings began almost two years ago, and all have been well attended. Organizers are hopeful many World War II veterans, including those who have not attended a previous luncheon, will attend.

More than 100 veterans of World War II, representing all military branches of service, reside in Cumberland County. Those interested in joining their fellow servicemen and women to honor the sacrifices made during one of the world's deadliest wars are requested to contact hosts Bill and Nancy Oehlecker at 788-6222 to register for the luncheon.

As always, space is limited, so please call as soon as possible. The program will include a guest speaker and many door prizes donated by local businesses. Veterans are encouraged to contact fellow veteran friends and invite them to the luncheon. Readers who are acquainted with World War II veterans are requested to make them aware of the Feb. 28 event.
