Veterans Day

There is a lot going on in and around the post this year.  For Veterans Day, we are out and about in the community supporting speaking requests and visiting other veterans.  We are also joining with the community to remember our veterans on this special day.  However, Covid had limited our direct participation in group events.

Want to know what is going on in the Chapel Hill area to commemorate Veterans Day?  Just scan through the current news items on this site or visit the community calendar for current community events.

Highlights of area events previously held include:

UNC-Chapel Hill ROTC Units Honor Vets – The cadets of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill ROTC units invited veterans to their Veteran’s Day Ceremony at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill on November 11.

This event was open to all veterans in our area and their families.

UNC Hospital Chapel Hill Veterans Recognition – The American Legion  participates in UNC Hospital’s annual recognition of veteran hospital employees and our local veterans. The event is held in the North Carolina Memorial Hospital building in the atrium.  Starting time is 2 p.m. the afternoon, Nov. 11.  

Orange County Veterans Memorial – Homestead Rd, Chapel Hill.  Visit for details.  THIS EVENT MAY BE ON-LINE ONLY IN 2020.

Need to speak to a veteran about anything for a news story?  Have a question about Veterans Day?  Want to help a veteran in need?  Give our post commander a call at 919-442-8130.

To book a speaker, please request early.  It takes time to arrange for a speaker and we receive a lot of requests for speakers during the weeks before and after a military holiday.
