LIMA The Lima News is bringing The Volunteers to the area for a special Veterans Day concert.

The Volunteers will be in concert Nov. 11 at Wapakoneta High Schools Performing Arts Center. The concert begins at 4 p.m.

This band, featuring six soldiers, is the rock arm of the U.S. Army Field Band. The band plays popular music such as what is currently playing on the radio, and it also has a segment that includes Motown hits and patriotic music including a musical tribute to the past and present members of the armed forces.

The Lima News has offered other military band concerts before, but this is the first time for The Volunteers.

We think its really exciting, and then to be able to do it on Veterans Day, weve never had that opportunity before, either, said Bill Clinger, marketing director of The Lima News.

I think over the years whats happened is, if you look at the veterans of today its a younger veteran now. And basically one of the things that this group appeals to is that age group, Clinger said.

The Volunteers formed in 1981 and now give about 100 concerts a year. The band has now performed in every state, Puerto Rico, Canada, Mexico, Kuwait and Iraq.

Youre going to see a quality entertainment group, and its free, Clinger said.

The show is sponsored by TSC, Superior Federal Credit Union and Otterbein Lifestyle Community-Cridersville. Free tickets are available at TSC locations in Wapakoneta and St. Marys, Superior Federal Credit Union in Wapakoneta, Otterbein-Cridersville and The Lima News.
