Veterans Day activity to honor those who served

This year, veterans from all branches of service and theaters will once again ride in the parade. At noon, the parade will end with a Veterans Day Ceremony at Marietta Square.

In honor of veterans' service to the nation and to commemorate 452 years of militia in St. Augustine, admission to the Castillo de San Marcos will be free on Veterans Day, Nov. 11.

Other special guests at the parade will be Third District Congressman Walter B. Jones Jr., R-N.C.; N.C. Sen. The U.S. Army Band also played during that event and the Andrews High School Chorus performed. The community is encouraged to attend the parade to celebrate the men and women who have served in the US military.


After the parade, veterans and citizens are invited to the Farmer's Market Pavilion for a light meet and greet. Food Lion, Smithfield's CVS Pharmacy and Fat Fellas BBQ have donated menu items. Local veteran groups, including the Andrews Veteran's Association, the American Legion, the Veterans of Foreign Wars and the Low Country Veterans, fraternal organizations, church groups, scouts, schools, bands and youth groups participated. Along with area veterans groups, there will be an assortment of fire trucks and military equipment.

The veteran of today is respected and revered by millions of Americans nationwide and in the continuing tradition to honor them and to maintain the legacy of their efforts for the "altar of freedom", we look forward to seeing each and every one of you at the ceremony. A complimentary meal will be served to the veterans after the program.
