Tony Orlando’s Yellow Ribbon Show is a Bransontradition. The veteran tribute show has welcomed vets from across the nation for two decades. The 20th anniversary shows, set for November 11 at the Welk Resort Theatre, is scheduled to be the last Yellow Ribbon Show hosted by Tony Orlando.
For visitors who plan on attending this year’s show they can look forward to the presentation of the Yellow Ribbon Medal of Freedom. Orlando presents the award to an outstanding American who has helped the cause of veterans. Last baseball hall of famer Tommy Lasorda was on hand to accept the award. Other recipients have been John McCain, Bob Hope and Mike Huckabee.
