Armed Forces Day - Welcome Home Parade May 19th in Richmond, VA

The Armed Forces Day – Welcome Home Parade for the Troops will be held this Saturday, May 19th in Richmond, VA.  This organization contacted the VMI Club of Richmond and would greatly appreciate our participation.  So let’s show our support and make a strong effort to be there Saturday morning.  The parade will start at the VMFA Museum and end at the War Memorial Carillon in Byrd Park (about 1.5 miles).  You will find details of the event on www.americaforvets.org.  Just click on Home Cities and then Richmond for details.  The Welcome Home Foundation has selected several major US cities to host these parades and Richmond is next!

Events like these are a great way for the VMI Club of Richmond to leverage its size and show strong support for a good cause.  Please meet at the intersection of N. Sheppard St and Hanover Ave at 9:00am.  VMI alumni need to congregate there and we will march as the last segment in the parade to honor our troops.  In an effort to dress in unison, plan on wearing dark shorts or pants and a white collared shirt.  If you wish to wear clothing of your military branch please do so but refrain from wearing anything political.  There is no designated parking so please try to find a spot around N. Sheppard & Hanover.

The mission of the Welcome Home Foundation is a non-for-profit organization dedicated to serving our veterans and their families with services across America. These include transition services for veterans and families from military and combat operations to re-acclimate into American society; providing needed connections with veteran service organizations; and helping veterans secure gainful and meaningful employment. By raising social awareness of the caliber of individuals who make up the one percent who served our country with honor and character in our post-911 wars, the Welcome Home Foundation seeks to strengthen America with its own plentiful returning natural resource: American veterans.
