City of Dunwoody Veterans Day Ceremony - Tuesday 10 a.m. at Brook Run Park

Veterans Day Ceremony

Tuesday, November 11

10 a.m.

We invite you to join your community to commemorate Veterans Day and honor the brave men and women who have served and currently serve in the United States Armed Forces.

A ceremony will be held in their honor at Brook Run Park, 4770 North Peachtree Road, beginning at 10 a.m., next to the Veterans Memorial. Join us in thanking these amazing men and women for their service. Seating is limited and attendees are encouraged to bring a lawn or camping chair.

Veterans Day is an official United States holiday that honors people who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces, also known as veterans. It is a federal holiday that is observed on November 11. It coincides with other holidays such as Armistice Day and Remembrance Day, which are celebrated in other parts of the world and also mark the anniversary of the end of World War I (major hostilities of World War I were formally ended at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918, when the Armistice with Germany went into effect). The United States also originally observed Armistice Day; it then evolved into the current Veterans Day holiday in 1954.
• Get a free haircut. Veterans who visit Great Clips shops on Nov. 11, can either receive a free haircut -- or a card for a free haircut to redeem by Dec. 31.

• Eat a free meal. At Hooters, the freebie meal on Veterans Day can be worth up to $10.99, with any drink purchase. Applebee's, Chili's and California Pizza Kitchen all offer free meals from a special menu to vets and active military.

• Drink a free coffee. Starbucks is offering a free, tall brewed coffee on Tuesday to all U.S. military veterans and active duty service members — and their spouses.
• Scarf down free pancakes. IHOP offers vets and active military free Red, White and Blue pancakes from 7 A.M. to 7 P.M. on Tuesday.

• Enjoy a free appetizer. Red Lobster, Nov. 10 through Nov. 13, is offering free appetizers to veterans and active duty military.

• Down a free doughnut — and coffee. Krispy Kreme will give a free doughnut and small coffee to anyone who identifies themselves as a veteran or active duty military on Veterans Day.
