You may admire their cars, but organizers want you to also honor the men and women behind the wheel.

For the last 5 years, the Veteran’s Car Show and Cruise-In has not only given the public the chance to check out some amazing cars but also shake the hands of those service men and women who signed up to serve our country.  The event stared down at Square Fair but has found a home at the Stat Spangled Spectacular over the past couple of years.  No matter which branch of service or what era they serve in,  the veterans the time they have together.

Andy Marvola, Organizer, Veteran’s Car Show and Cruise-In says, “A lot of these guys were veterans from Vietnam, World War II.  We had one that was 100 years old, we honored him with a plaque for years of service.  And Korea and we got guys from desert storm.  If you go look down, you look under those trees and they are all sitting there talking to each other.  Some of them are talking about their memories other ones don’t want to talk about their memories, but they all get together and have a good three or four hours.”

The Veterans Car Show and Cruise-In was sponsored by Chiles-Laman Funeral Home.
