Sunday, July 11th, 2021 was a red-letter day in Medora.
That’s because we were thrilled to host another wonderful Veterans and Military Appreciation Day. Under a warm July sun (with enough wind to keep the bugs away all evening!) an audience of nearly 3,000 Medora Musical attendees was able to say thank you to heroes past and present!
On Sunday, we invited active duty and retired military members to see the Medora Musical free of charge… ride Manitou the Point to Point Zipline at no cost… and socialize at the Pitchfork Steak Fondue. Dozens, if not hundreds, of service members took advantage—and we were grateful that we could celebrate them.
We’re able to honor those brave men and women thanks to our Veterans Endowment, which was created and initially funded by Mary Larsen. She, Van & Dee Larson, and Guaranty & Title Co. have all contributed at least $25,000 to this growing endowment—and we’re so thankful that they’ve done so. It makes wonderful celebrations like this possible!
Here are a few photos highlighting the wonderful experience that was the 2021 Military and Veterans Appreciation Day in Medora:
All Veterans and active duty service members are invited to a special day in Medora with their families as we honor their service to our Country.
The Theodore Roosevelt Medora Foundation (TRMF) will be hosting a series of special events in Medora Sunday, July 10 to honor our nation’s veterans. The annual Veterans Day Celebration salutes those who have served in the United States military.
The ceremonies will culminate with a flyover by three WWII fighter aircraft: a P-51 Mustang named “Boomer,” piloted by Fargo-based Toby McPherson, as well as a P-40 Warhawk and Navy Corsair (images below) from the world-famous Texas Flying Legends museum. Both McPherson and the Texas Flying Legends are active in supporting veterans across the nation. READ MORE »
