VA personnel in attendance will include our Executive Team, Women Veteran Program Manager, VA Benefits, Eligibility, MST Coordinator, IPV Coordinator, Suicide Coordinator and others. They look forward to providing services and information to our Military and Veterans.

This is event is open to the public. Visitors off base should use the far left lane at the Shiloh Gate for entrance and they will be directed to the SEC. On base members are encouraged to park in the recommended parking areas for ease of entry and to reduce congestion in this area.

In addition, this may inhibit traffic flow off base in the afternoon around Shiloh Gate; therefore, personnel not attending the Car Show are advised to exit the installation through the Belleville Gate or Mid-America (Cardinal Creek) Gate.

Personnel using the Mid-America Gate should use either Hangar Road to Golf Course Road or South Drive to access the gate and avoid the intersection of Bucher and Scott Drive adjacent to the Scott Event Center. This will help curb any potential traffic jams or bottlenecks at Shiloh Gate.
