Lyn Breisacher, with the Veterans’ Affairs Committee of Granville County, was on Monday’s edition of WIZS’ Town Talk to discuss the 4th Annual Military History Show to be held Saturday, October 26, 2019, at the Henderson-Oxford Airport.

The airport is located at 6514 Airport Road in Oxford, NC.

The event, to be held from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m., will feature various military displays including uniforms, equipment, weapons, vehicles and many other military historical articles. Admission is free and open to the general public.

Started in 2016 by World War II buff and war reenactor Harry Coombs, the show continues to gain popularity every year.

“The excitement keeps growing; we’ve seen more this year as people are becoming more aware of it,” said Breisacher.

All proceeds from the event benefit the Granville County Veterans’ Affairs Committee. “Harry very graciously gives proceeds from the show to the committee to help with the need of veterans throughout our area,” Breisacher said.

The show kicks off the beginning of Veterans Day celebrations and remembrances in Granville County, culminating in Veterans Day, officially observed this year on Monday, November 11.

Vendor spaces are available and donations are accepted. For more information, please contact Coombs at (919) 691-7697 or email [email protected]
