The Players is more than Golf…Remembering VE Day


There is a very special program planned for Tuesday, May 10th  from 11:00- 12:00. The Players Community Senior Center located at 175 Landrum Lane in Ponte Vedra will be honoring VE Day (Victory in Europe, World War II).  Nelson Johnson, a 95-year-old Army vet will share his Battle of the Bulge experiences with the audience.


Benjamin Walters, Lieutenant Colonel, US Army Commander, 832nd Transportation Battalion, Blount Island, will be the officiating military representative for the event. Lieutenant Colonel  Walters has served in numerous civic and military capacities honoring our veterans in the recent past.
