Veterans Breakfast 2017 a first at the new VFW Post 6097
A First, a history making event with the first ever Veterans Annual Breakfast in the New Post Building made this event a Red Letter Day one - but thanks to some behind the scenes negotiations at a very high level, the Post's Monument is in Place - weeks earlier than had been expected, when on Thursday, November 9, 2017, it was quietly and safely secured in place.

The annual Walmart Supercenter/United Citizens Bank Veterans Day breakfast held Saturday, November 11, 2017 was inside the newly finished VFW building at 500 Green Hills Road, Columbia, KY, and there was a surprise: The Post's Monument had been rebuilt and was in its place, ready to add to the feeling that the Veterans were at home.
A huge country breakfast was served up by Walmart associates, the co-hosts with United Citizens Bank, and then there was a brief ceremony.
It was a very emotional meeting with only one WWII Veteran able to be in attendance, and ths was the first time for this event to be held in the new VFW building at its new location.
The program followed the traditional format:
