UPDATE: The Ralph H. Johnson VA Health Care System’s annual Charleston Veterans Day Parade has been canceled due to expected flooding and rainfall during the parade. The parade was scheduled to be held on Saturday, November 6th. There is no reschedule time or date for the parade.

“It is a difficult decision to cancel this parade,” said Ralph H. Johnson VA Health Care System Director and CEO Scott Isaacks. “Every year we look forward to honoring our Lowcountry Veterans with the parade celebration. However, this year, with the inclement weather, we must put the safety of our parade participants and community first and cancel the parade.”

The Ralph H. Johnson VA Health Care System will have a special message for Veterans on their Facebook Page for Veterans Day next week. Tune into  https://www.facebook.com/VAMCCharleston to listen to the message.
