The Military Vehicle Preservation Association is conducting the 95th Anniversary Convoy with as many as 65 historic military vehicles.
The convoy should arrive in Murfreesboro sometime after 9:45 a.m. and will continue through Nashville as well.
All veterans are welcomed to join a reception in their honor at the Pavilion on “The Square” in Murfreesboro from 9-11 a.m. The reception is being held by many organizations in Murfreesboro to show gratitude and appreciation for all veterans.
