Veterans Day

Veterans Day is an official United States public holiday. It is observed annually on November 11 and honors military veterans of  the United States Armed Forces. World War I was formally ended on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918, when the Armistice with Germany went into effect. The United States previously observed Armistice Day, but the holiday in the United States was renamed Veterans Day in 1954. The formal end of WWI is celebrated in other countries where it is known by names such as Armistice Day and Remembrance Day. Veterans Day should not be confused with Memorial Day; Veterans Day celebrates the service of all U.S. military veterans, while Memorial Day honors those who died while in military service.

Bluffton Veterans Day Parade

Each year prior to 2015 on Veterans Day, November 11, Post 205 participated in the county-organized parade in Beaufort. In 2015 we decided, because we are a Bluffton post, that we intend to honor future military and veteran events in Bluffton.  Our first opportunity to do so resulted in a very successful parade on November 11, 2015 in Bluffton.  We received full cooperation from the Bluffton Police and Fire Departments and the political and administrative leadership of the town. We enjoy their complete support for this year's parade and expect that support in the future.

Effective for the 2018 parade and beyond, the Town of Bluffton has graciously agreed that the parade will be in the name of the Town of Bluffton and sponsored by American Legion Post 205.

Planning and preparation for the 2022 parade will begin in earnest after the Memorial Day Ceremony. We will be soliciting units to participate. We will consider any group; we only ask that it pertain to veterans, be military-related, or be patriotic. If you are at all interested in participating, please keep your eye on this page after Memorial Day for information on how to sign up.
