Ralph H. Johnson VA Medical Center to host Virtual Veterans Day Parade

Published

The Ralph H. Johnson VA Medical Center will host a Virtual Veterans Day Parade at noon on November 11th on its Facebook Page.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the medical center is unable to host their traditional Veterans Day Parade that marches down East Bay Street and Broad Street in downtown Charleston. To ensure Lowcountry Veterans are honored on Veterans Day, the medical center’s virtual event will feature a compilation of videos submitted from community leaders and members that all show gratitude for those who served in our Nation.

“While I’m disappointed that we’re not able to host our traditional parade, I’m grateful we have the technology to bring messages from our community to our Veterans,” said Charleston VAMC Director Scott Isaacks. “Veterans Day is a special day for us at the Ralph H. Johnson VA Medical Center; we serve more than 80,000 Veterans at our VA, and I truly hope each of them enjoys a special Veterans Day.”

Charleston VAMC solicited for video entries throughout the month of October, inviting anyone in the community to submit their short video clip for inclusion in the virtual parade. With more than 55 videos submitted from community leaders, elected officials, Veterans Service Organizations, schools, local businesses and private citizens, the virtual parade will be filled with special messages for Veterans.

Everyone is invited to tune into the parade airing on www.facebook.com/VAMCCharleston.
