Eighth Annual Salute to Idaho Veteras

Friday, November 9, 2018, 6:30 PM - 9:00 PM


The eighth annual “Salute to Idaho Veterans” is a free event honoring local Veterans and current Armed Services personnel. The “Salute” features a meet and greet, flag ceremony, Posting of the Colors, a guest speaker, luncheon, slide show, free portrait photos for the Veterans, and a complimentary gift. This year’s guest speaker is Leslie Chapman of Idaho Falls. During four tours in Vietnam as a Top Secret Recon Team Leader in Laos, Cambodia, and North Vietnam, Chapman was awarded the Distinguished Service Cross, the Silver Star for Valor, five Bronze Stars, five Air Medals, four Army Commendation Medals, six Purple Hearts, and other service awards. Chapman also spent four years with the Special Forces Group in Panama, fought in the invasion of Grenada in 1983, and helped train the Contras in Honduras. He retired from the Army in 1987 after 21 years of dedicated service. The Salute is a prelude to the longstanding traditions that local Veterans Service Organizations have carried out each year on November 11, and is Farm Bureau’s way of saying “thank you” to our local Veterans and current Armed Services personnel for their service to our country. The Salute will be held at Farm Bureau’s 275 Tierra Vista Drive location in Pocatello on Friday, November 9, from 10:30 AM to 1:00 PM.
