Veterans Day in Fayetteville

They stood for us. We stand with them. This Nov. 11, we honor our veterans as we celebrate Veterans Day as a community. On this special holiday we salute those who have served and honor the tremendous sacrifices made by them and our families to preserve our freedom.

Join us in celebrating our local heroes at the annual Fayetteville Veterans Day Parade on Nov. 4 at 10 a.m. in historic downtown Fayetteville. It will begin on Hay Street at the Airborne Special Operations Museum. The theme of this year’s parade is “Honoring our Vietnam Veterans” as a special tribute to our Vietnam War Heroes. The parade is one of the many events as a part of Cumberland County’s Heroes Homecoming IV. The list of other events can be found here. While at these events, be open to speaking with the veterans around you. One of the best ways to honor a veteran is to listen, engage in a meaningful conversation about their experiences.

Over at Marketfair, anyone interested in serving our country can stop by our Air Force Recruiting location to acquire more information.

We hope everyone has a great Veterans Day and a special thank you to all our community heroes!
