The Howard County Veterans Foundation, Howard County Executive Calvin Ball and The Columbia Association are proud to host the 6th Annual Howard County Veterans Day Celebration.

This year, we honor “The Year of the Woman” by highlighting Women Veterans and Military Family Members. The MC for our event this year will be Ms. Jamie Gillette, Veteran Spouse. In addition, CAPT Wanda Riddle USN (retired) will lead us in a ceremony to honor our Veterans.

As part of an effort to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, we will not have our traditional lakefront community celebration. Instead we will be livestreaming the event on our website:


The event is scheduled to start at 9:30am today.

Here is the event on YouTube:

I thought I would sport my favorite U.S. Navy hat for this post:

I have enjoyed attending this parade in the past. For those that also enjoy seeing this parade I thought I would share photos from past parades before the event this morning:

Here are photos from the 2019 Veterans Day Parade in Howard County:

Here are photos from the 2018 Veterans Day Parade in Howard County:

I hope you enjoy the photos from the past parades and enjoy the event today. I have to do some work later this morning and will miss seeing the event live today…but will be sure to watch it later on this afternoon or tomorrow morning.

Veteran Day is on November 11, 2020.  For all those members that are currently serving this nation or have served this nation in the past…from one veteran to another…THANK YOU!!!
