DARKE COUNTY — The Darke County Veterans Services Commission is planning a bus trip to Washington D.C. Sept. 28 through Oct. 1, 2017.

This trip is an opportunity for our county veterans to visit the World War II, Korean and Vietnam Memorials at a significantly reduced cost. Additional stops on the trip include the Air Force Memorial, Iwo Jima Memorial, the Holocaust Museum, and Arlington Cemetery where a wreath will be placed by Darke County at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

This trip is open to all honorably discharged Darke County veterans and their spouses. The anticipated out-of-pocket cost for each person is $250.

In support of the bus trip, the Darke County Veterans Services Commission will be hosting a comedy show featuring nationally recognized comedian, Greg Hahn. Greg is a Marine Corps Veteran and regular guest on the Bob and Tom Radio Show. The comedy show will be at the Greenville VFW post 7262 on Saturday, May 27. All proceeds from ticket sales will be used to support the 2017 Veterans Washington D.C. trip.

Please call the Darke County Veterans Services Office at 937-548-5305 or visit the website www.darkecountyveterans.org for further details.
