The service and sacrifices of military veterans will be honored with a special parade and other events in downtown Louisville Veteran’s Day, Nov. 11.
A special display will be installed in front of the Frazier Museum Nov. 5 through 12– Kentucky’s “40 et 8” boxcar, on loan from the Kentucky Railway Museum in New Haven. The “40 et 8” boxcar was sent to Kentucky by people in France in 1949 in gratitude for America’s donation of food and life necessities in 1948; each state received a “40 et 8” car. Kentucky’s is one of 35 cars known to remain in existence. In connection with the “40 et 8” display, volunteers will serve as docents to explain the “40 et 8” program and the car’s history.
The museum also will provide reduced admission to the public and free admission to veterans and active military members that day. A Supply Drive for the Troops to collect “care packages” for military personnel serving overseas will kick off that day at the museum and run through February 16.
