For the second year, American Legion service officers from Iowa and Minnesota will be onsite to meet with veterans and their families to help them with their Department of Veterans Affairs benefits and health-care interests. Soldier’s Wish will also be in attendance, granting wishes to soldiers, veterans and their families as a way to honor them for their bravery and sacrifice to our country.

“The continued support of Tree Town Music Festival is a great display of patriotism,” Department of Iowa Commander Ron Struble said. “We look forward to spending the weekend leading up to Memorial Day at Tree Town Music Festival with veterans and their families while remembering our fallen heroes who have paid the ultimate price for our nation’s freedom.”
