Captain Edmund F. Shultis, commanding officer of the Oneonta unit, said visitors will also be shown a regular Company “C” drill and training demonstration by mortar and machine gun squads.
In addition, the company will display military equipment including a personnel carrier, weapons, a field kitchen and a portion of an antique weapons collection. Capt. Shultis hopes the weather will be good enough so guests can ride in the personnel carrier.
An informal refreshment hour will follow.
