 Veterans Corner
Ask any member of the OVMS what the most important thing about collecting militaria is to him or her, and chances are they will tell you that the foundation of their hobby is a profound respect and admiration for veterans, their service, and their sacrifices. 

The same is true for the OVMS as an organization.  Every year at the Show-of-Shows, the club invites notable veterans to share their experiences with the membership and the public.

We've provided this page as a way for you to share in these veterans' experiences.
