Our Mission is to provide a venue to bring together and Honor all US Military Veterans each year on or near Veterans Day.
We are having the first Veterans Day Parade to be held in Downtown Wilmington, North Carolina on November 11, 2017 at 9:30 am in conjunction with the New Hanover Veterans Council. We are inviting everyone from South East North Carolina and beyond.
The idea for this parade was conceived by Marc Biddison, a Vietnam veteran. After our troops returned home they were shunned and not welcomed. The theme is “Honor Our Vets”. It is time that all veterans from all branches of the U.S. Armed Forces are Honored for their service .
He has formed a committee made up of a group of friends both veterans and those who just want to help out to organize this event.
About Our Parade
We want all Veterans to participate and as a Special Honor, we are making our Grand Marshals of the parade all of the WWII Veterans that attend. There will be no charge for any Military Personnel or Groups, First Responders, School & Military Bands to participate in our parade. This parade is to to Honor All Who Served!
