Our mission is to provide a venue to bring together and honor all U.S. military veterans each year on or near Veterans Day.
We are having our annual Southeast North Carolina Veterans Parade at 11 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 11, 2023, in downtown Wilmington, N.C., in conjunction with the New Hanover Veterans Council. We are inviting everyone from Southeast North Carolina and beyond.
The idea for this parade was conceived by Marc Biddison, a Vietnam veteran. After our troops returned home they were shunned and not welcomed. The theme is “Honoring All Who Served.” It is time that all veterans from all branches of the U.S. Armed Forces are honored for their service .
He has formed a committee made up of a group of friends both veterans and those who just want to help out to organize this event.
About Our Parade
We want all veterans to participate and as a special honor, we will name grand marshals for the 2023 parade soon. As always there is no charge to participate for all authorized participants.
