    Why you think someone should attend the event?
    “This is the first time the VA [Veterans Association] has come out to support an event in such mass quantities. It's important to attend to help the veterans in the community. Pulaski County has a huge population of veterans and it's our job to take care of them and do anything we can to help them.”
