For Veterans Day 2017, our San Jose chapter had an exhibit at the Santana Row Veterans Day parade.
On Thursday, the Veterans gave out awards to all organizations and individuals that participated in the event.
For our San Jose chapter, Phil Woodruff accepted the award:
In his acceptance speech, Phil gave a brief description of our 1250 hobby, and its link to the US military with the 1250 recognition models used during the war.
And here is a photo from the event showing a Veteran of the USS Enterprise, CV6, holding a 1250 model of his ship:
Our 1250 display was very popular at the event. They have asked us to display again during this years Veterans Day Parade.
