The Tennessee Maneuvers – A Temporary Interruption

Sold-Out Fundraiser

Sold-Out Fundraiser

Friends of the Wilson County Veterans Museum, Inc. hosted a sold-out dinner to raise money to fund the first phase of the production for The Tennessee Maneuvers – A Temporary Interruption.
Including tickets sales and donations, the event grossed more than $20,000.

The highlight of the evening for many was the appearance of Mt. Juliet resident, Bob Masto, and his wife, Nell. Masto grew up in New Jersey and was drafted into the Army. After his basic training n Kentucky, he was sent to the The Tennessee Maneuvers.

FWCVM would like to thank: Sammy B’s for the food, the staff of the Wilson County Expo, Susie James for allowing us to share her family photos, students from Wilson Central High School for recording the event, DeAna Duncan for taking still photos, the group of re-enactors who also displayed some of their WWII artifacts and all the volunteers who helped us set up and take down the decorations.

The money made from this event will be used for more production work including interviewing soldiers who trained in the maneuvers and locals who witnessed the historic event.
