Ohio Valley Military Society
Show of Shows
February 27, 2014
Dear 2014 Show of Shows Attendees:
Welcome to the 22nd Annual Show of Shows. The officers, directors, and staff of the
Ohio Valley Military Society are pleased you have chosen to attended our show, and hope
your visit is enjoyable.
Again this year we have over 1,965 dealer selling tables containing all sorts of militaria,
and over 750 dealers welcoming you to buy, sell, or trade militaria.
This year’s Show of Shows welcomes a mighty fine group of veteran guests. We hope
you will take a few moments to meet and chat with these veterans. They are located at the
rear of the hall, and their biographical sketches begin on Page 10.
It is a pleasure for our staff to assist you with information about the Show of Shows, and
other shows sponsored by The Ohio Valley Military Society in Wilmington, Ohio. For
those who want to ensure they won’t be left out, you can submit a table application for
the 2014 Show of Shows waiting list at the registration counter in the front lobby starting
at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday. Table openings for the 2015 Show of Shows that become avail-
able after April 15, 2014, will be filled from those on the waiting list.
Interested in bargains in militaria collecting? Membership in the OVMS is one of the best
to be found. Membership includes free admission to our shows (member, spouse, children
under 18 years old), discount on table rental for OVMS sponsored shows, early show
admittance before public attendees, and a newsletter or notification to you before each
show. You may obtain a membership at the registration counter in the front lobby.
In the militaria collecting field, OVMS and SOS are two entities synonymous with excel-
lence. Each year we strive to bring you the best show possible. Have we succeeded this
year? Only you can answer that! For those of us who participate in, and are associated
with this exceptional event, we extend our welcome.
