Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- Not only will you recognize the movies in this latest calendar from the Bong Veterans Center, you'll also recognize some familiar faces around the Twin Ports area.

This year's 2013 calendar from the Richard I. Bong Veterans Historical Center in partnership with Kernz & Kompany titled "Celebrating Their Service" pays homage to movies that were made about World War II or shot during that period in time.

The calendar features well known individuals in the Duluth/Superior area such as Dave Podratz from Calumet Specialty Products Superior Refinery, Ryan Kern from Kernz & Kompany, Johnny Ringold from Benna Ford and many more.

The calendar goes on sale today at local Super One Food Stores for $16.99.

“This is one of the very few fundraisers that the Bong Veterans Center does and because of the uniqueness of the calendar we hope that the calendar project will help fund many of the things that the Bong Veterans Center does in support of area veterans” said Ryan Kern of Kernz & Kompany.

All proceeds from the sale of the calendar go directly to the Bong Veterans Historical Center.
