Our Mission Statement
The mission of the Georgia Veterans Day Association, Inc., is to honor, support and thank all who have served and are currently serving our Nation in the United States Military. We accomplish these goals by hosting the Nation's largest Veterans Day Parade and annual Freedom Ball, promoting the truth that freedom is not free and exhibiting the belief of freedom through service.
Another facet of our mission is to educate the public and citizens of Georgia about the sacrifices of our Nation's military. Through outreach programs to educators or through our promotion of JROTC/ROTC programs in Georgia's schools, we must ensure our children understand the sacrifices of our Veterans and how proudly our military members have served our Nation.
Dear Fellow Veterans and Supporters,
It is truly an honor to continue to lead this amazing group of volunteers who tirelessly work each year to honor our Nation's Veterans. Our association meets every month to plan the great events that we present each year. I have never met a group more dedicated to our Veterans.
Our theme for our 2019 events will be based upon an important period of time for our Nation - "Veterans Day Centennial" - which celebrates the 100 year anniversary of our Nation recognizing Armistice Day.
Additional information will be made available in the comings months, but I urge you to mark your calendars for 9 November 2019. Join me and the entire association in paying special honors to our fellow military Veterans and to educate citizens of the service and sacrifices of our Veterans and active duty military.
If you have any questions or require additional information, please contact me direct at any time at firstname.lastname@example.org.
