Veterans Day – Thursday, November 11, 2021
Honoring All Those Who Served
As we approach Veterans Day Thursday, please remember to take some time to honor our service members who served and sacrificed so that we can enjoy our liberties and freedoms and be with our loved ones.
As a “Thank You” for your service, we have gathered and assembled these Veterans Day events and discounts for veterans.
Please feel free to share any or all of these with those who wish to honor and share appreciation to our veterans, past and present.
From all of the staff and volunteers here at the Gold Coast Veterans Foundation, we hope you have a safe Veterans Day. We will be closed on Veterans Day Thursday, but will re-open on Friday, November 12th to continue Serving Those Who Served Us. Thank you.
