In past years, Veterans Day has been commemorated in multiple, small events throughout the region. This year the pandemic and its accompanying prohibition on large, in-person events has presented our region with an opportunity. This year we have the chance to unite for a one-of-a-kind, community-wide, Carolinas' Veterans Day Celebration. We invite you to join us on November, 11th at 4:30 p.m. for a special virtual celebration with Medal of Honor Recipient David Bellavia, SSG Ret. This is a chance to hear his heroic story, celebrate our Veterans, and give to Veterans Bridge Home.
