Recently groups of US.Veterans reversed the trend that most Branson Entertainers have in honoring our Military personal at each of their shows. The Veterans sent Certificates of appreciation for the tributes. This took place after some Branson entertainers went out of their way to entertain the troops at a remote destination. The Brett Family was the reciprocant of one of the Certificates.

At this great show they also have one of the finest comedians in the business and Jarrett Dougherty is a very popular funnyman in Branson.
