Salute to Veterans, Troops and Families set for July 26 at Fair

BATAVIA, Ohio (July 15, 2015) – U.S. Rep. Brad Wenstrup, a lieutenant colonel in the U.S. Army Reserves, will speak at the annual Salute to Veterans, Troops and Their Families at 6 p.m. Sunday July 26 at the Clermont County Fair.

The annual event, organized by Clermont County Commissioner Bob Proud, will also feature a flyover by  a World War II Warbird, flown by Todd Winemiller. Congressman Wenstrup, who has served in the U.S. Army Reserve since 1998, and was awarded a Bronze Star and Combat Action Badge for his service in Iraq, will also perform a ceremonial swearing-in of recruits from various military branches.

“We really encourage people to come to this event and show their appreciation for troops who are currently serving, veterans who have proudly served, and of course, families of these men and women, who often make great sacrifices for our country,” said Commissioner Proud. “This is a time to say thank you to all of them, and to wish Godspeed to the new recruits.”

July 26 is Preview Day at the fair. Parking and admission are free. The Clermont County Fairgrounds are located at 1000 Locust St., Owensville.
