On Saturday, May 6, at 6:00 pm, the West Point Alumni Glee Club will perform a free concert honoring Vietnam Veterans as well as all those that have served in the U.S. Military, at Eisenhower National Historic Site. The hour long concert is free to the public and will take place in the back yard of President Eisenhower’s Gettysburg home. Parking is available on site for the performance. Vehicles may enter through the site’s main gate off of Millerstown Road. The gate opens at 5:30 pm.
The West Point Alumni Glee Club is made up of graduates from the United States Military Academy at West Point, 75 percent of whom are combat veterans with an average of 20 years active duty service. Members perform as ambassadors of West Point and the Army, believing in the importance of traditional music in their service to the nation. In the case of bad weather, the event will be moved to the Group Lobby of the Gettysburg Military Park Visitor Center.
