Veterans Day Around West Cobb

It’s easy to buy a card to celebrate holidays, but sometimes it takes a little more, especially when it comes to our Veterans. They sacrifice their lives, time with their families and friends, and so much more. One day to honor them seems like so little. Here is just a sampling of activities and more to salute them tomorrow.

And … have you purchased a green light? Find out about it here.


At 11am, you can pay tribute to local Veterans at the Marietta Veterans Day Parade, which will include marching bands, drill teams, floats, military vehicles and veterans’ organizations, including representation from Marietta and Cobb County schools of their bands and their JROTC units.

Acworth will honor our Veterans at 2 pm at Patriots Point at Cauble Park, home of the Veterans Memorial.

North Cobb American Legion Post 304 and the City of Kennesaw will show their support of our Veterans with a free lunch for Veterans and active duty personnel in the Kennesaw area at the Ben Robertson Community Center.
