Legion, Soldier's Wish head to Tennessee

The American Legion, Soldier’s Wish and the HISTORY channel will be at the 2013 CMA Music Festival in Nashville, Tenn., to conduct another Salute & Serve Our Nation’s Heroes event.

The Legion and Soldier’s Wish will have a tent set up at 123 2nd Ave. S. from 10 a.m.-6 p.m., June 6-9, for people to nominate a servicemember or veteran to have a wish granted. Tennessee Legionnaires will also be on site to hand out Legion brochures and answer questions about the Legion.

The Legion and Soldier’s Wish tent will be right next to HISTORY’s 80-foot Cross-Country Cookout smoker and grill, where stars from several of its programs will be on site to take photos with veterans, servicemembers and their families.
