To our Veterans and GVDA Supporters -
The Mission of the Georgia Veterans Day Association is to honor our Veterans and Active-Duty Military in addition to educating our fellow citizens on the service and sacrifice of our men and women who wear and have worn our Nation’s uniform. We will accomplish our mission this year by presenting the Georgia Veterans Day Parade, a Veterans Festival, the Observance Ceremony, and our annual black-tie Freedom Ball.
The theme for this year's events will be "The Last 100 Yards" and honors the Infantry from both the United States Army and the United States Marine Corps. Fort Benning, located an hour and a half south of Atlanta, is the home of the United States Army Infantry School – the post where all new Army Infantry Soldiers and Officers receive their training. It is also home to the National Infantry Museum, which showcases how the Infantry has played a vital role in our Nation’s history.
We are excited that our 2021 Veterans Day Events are taking shape and have entered the final phase of planning. Our events will be presented in-person this year and we encourage everyone to bring their family and friends to join us as we honor our Veterans. All of our events will take place at The Battery Atlanta - a great destination that has easy parking options and many dining choices to enjoy after our events.
The GVDA will continue to monitor the conditions on the ground and will modify our plans to comply with all COVID mitigation procedures as needed. I encourage you to continually visit our website for all of the latest event details and guidelines.
We look forward to seeing all of you at The Battery Atlanta on 06 November 2021 as we honor Georgia's Veterans!
