Mitchell County Kansas has been a long and good supporter of the Veteran’s Day Celebration. This event coupled with the events of Beloit, KS will make this Veteran’s Day celebration in North Central Kansas very special.

A highlight of the Re-enactment will be a special presentation by Command Sergeant Major Lowell May, USA 1959-85, which will enlighten those in attendance about the Cawker City Prisoner of War Camp as well as general information about the 23 POW Camps in Kansas.
