Get your tickets by May 1 for the Veterans Dinner Dance on Saturday, May 16, and for the Myrtle Beach Pelicans’ veterans’ night on Thursday, May 14!  Those are just two of the many activities scheduled throughout May as part of Military Appreciation Days in Myrtle Beach.  We’re celebrating military men and women – active duty, reserves and National Guard – and veterans from every service branch.  The Pelicans even will wear camouflage uniforms which will be auctioned off!  For details, see www.militaryappreciationdays.com

 

Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans Tribute – Sponsored by Rolling Thunder SC3, this event on Saturday, May 2, at the St. John the Baptist Greek Orthodox Church Fellowship Hall is a welcome-home for our veterans who’ve served in Iraq and Afghanistan.  It’s a low-key, social event, beginning at 12:00 p.m., and everyone’s invited. 

 

Ocean Boulevard Parade Friday, May 1, also is the deadline to register for the Military Appreciation Days Parade, which steps off at 10:30 a.m., Saturday, May 16, with Grand Marshal J.R. Martinez.  This Army veteran spent 34 months in recovery after he was severely wounded during a tour of duty in Iraq in 2003, then became a successful actor, author, motivational speaker, and winner of Dancing with the StarsWant to be in the parade?  Sign up at www.militaryappreciationdays.com.

Martinez, too! 

 

Veterans March on Ocean Boulevard – At 9:00 a.m., Monday, May 25, veterans are invited to march from 16th Avenue North to Ninth Avenue North on Ocean Boulevard, in commemoration of Memorial Day.  The Veterans March is not a parade, so it won’t include vehicles or floats (unless a vehicle is required for veterans who cannot walk).  For ease of parking, a shuttle will be provided from the Pelicans’ stadium to Ocean Boulevard.  A brief ceremony will follow the march at the Pavilion site.  The march will end in time for all to attend the Memorial Day Ceremony at the Convention Center.  

 

Memorial Day Remembrance Ceremony – At 11:00 a.m., Monday, May 25, everyone is invited to join us for the Memorial Day Remembrance Ceremony on the Plaza at the Myrtle Beach Convention Center.  The Grand Strand Patriot Alliance recognizes Memorial Day with speakers, the Missing Man Table and an honor guard salute.  The public is cordially invited to attend all events, as we say "thank you" to our military men, women and families.
