AARP Kentucky has teamed up with AARP Tennessee to cosponsor the third annual Welcome Home festival for veterans Sept. 13-16 in Clarksville, Tenn. The Volunteer State is home to more than 500,000 veterans, and Clarksville is home to Fort Campbell, one of the largest Army bases in the nation.
The event will feature a parade; the American Veterans Traveling Tribute wall; food, wine and other beverages; and a concert Saturday evening. The celebration aims to honor and support everyone who served in the military, particularly in Vietnam.
The event is open to the public, and more than 10,000 people are expected to attend. AARP members and their guests can get an 18 percent discount on all ticketed events by using promo code welcome50.
