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 2015 Veterans Day Parade will be on Saturday, November 7, 2015 at 11:11 am in downtown Atlanta. The Parade Reviewing stand is by the World of Coca Cola on Baker Street. Check back here for additional news and information.
Thank you for joining us in honoring our World War II Veterans on 08 November 2014. The annual Atlanta Veterans Day Parade and the Freedom Ball that evening at the Oceans Ballroom of the Georgia Aquarium were our best yet.
Special thanks to our Parade Grand Marshal and Freedom Ball Keynote Speaker Capt. Dale Dye, USMC (Ret) who truly helped us accomplish our mission and pay tribute to our WWII Veterans.
We also want to thank WXIA-TV's Bill Liss who emcee'd the Veterans Day Parade and to Wes Sarginson, formerly of WXIA-TV, who once again emcee'd our annual Freedom Ball.
And most important, we want to thank all of our Nation's Veterans.
