FROM THE PRESIDENT 

 

Dear Fellow Veterans and our Supporters:

The Georgia Veterans Day Parade Association is hard at work planning the 2014 Veterans Day events in Atlanta.  Our theme is "Pathway to Victory" and focuses on the final 15 months of World War II.  This June, the world will remember the 70th Anniversary of the D-Day operation to free Europe from Nazi tyranny.  While that operation is an often celebrated date, there were many other operations in both the European and Pacific theatres that led the Allies on the path to victory.  Therefore, in 2014, we will pay special honors to Veterans of those 0perations and all of our World War II Veterans.

I am also pleased to announce our 2014 Parade Grand Marshal and Freedom Ball Keynote Speaker will be Capt Dale Dye, USMC (Ret).  He has been the leading military consultant for decades and has been ensuring authenticity in projects such as Band Of Brothers, Saving Private Ryan, The Great Raid, The Pacific and many other great military film projects.  We are proud to have him join us and honored that he accepted our invitation.  His complete biography is available to view here.

Keep checking back to our website for upcoming events and additional information about our 2014 Atlanta Veterans Day Parade and Freedom Ball. 

Respectfully,

Kevin L Miller / President 


33rd Annual Atlanta Veterans Day Parade and Freedom Ball

Saturday, November 8, 2014

Honor our Nation's Veterans by supporting the annual parade in downtown Atlanta, GA. Presented by the Georgia Veterans Day Parade Association of Atlanta, Inc., the 33rd Annual Atlanta Veterans Day Parade will be held on Saturday, November 8, 2014. Our great city has a history of wonderful support for parades throughout the year and we hope that you will join us in saying thanks to a group of great Americans who protected the freedoms we all hold dear.  The Atlanta Veterans Day Parade will pay tribute to roughly three-quarters of a million Georgia Veterans and their families.

We are very pleased to announce that this year's theme for the Parade and Freedom Ball is:

 

 Pathway to Victory

"From D-Day to Tokyo Bay"

 

 


2014 Commemorative Challenge Coin

We are pleased to announce the release of our 2014 Challenge Coin.  For the past four years, we have enjoyed the opportunity to give our gold Commander's Coin to our valued partners and supporters.  Last year, we were asked to create copies of these coins in silver that would be available to everyone who makes donations.

This year's coin covers four key events of World War II - The D-Day Airborne Operation, B-17s dropping bombs over Germany, our Marines landing on a Pacific Island, and the USS Missouri in Tokyo Bay for the Japanese Surrender.  We also are pleased that the four quadrants of the coin pay respect to all four main branches of our Armed Forces at that time - US Army, US Army Air Corps, US Marines, and the US Navy.

To receive this year's Silver Commemorative Challenge Coin, you need only make a $15 donation via PayPal at the bottom of this page.  

Please join us in saying thanks!

Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines have all given their time, and often their lives, to protect our freedoms. They answered the call when our Nation needed them most. And now they deserve our honor and respect. We invite you to take this opportunity to say thanks and show your appreciation by participating in this patriotic event.

Since 1981, volunteers from veteran groups, active duty Military and civic minded community members have been staging a Veterans Day Parade in Atlanta. We invite you to join us. The 2014 Veterans Day Parade will be on Saturday, November 8, 2014 at 11:11 am in downtown Atlanta. The Parade Reviewing stand is by the World of Coca Cola on Baker Street.
