Veterans Day events set

Published 12:04 am Thursday, November 8, 2018

The Covington County Veterans Day parade is set for 9 a.m. Monday, Nov. 12, in Andalusia.

U.S. Marine Corps Major (Ret.) Christopher Lawson, a Pleasant Home graduate, will be the guest speaker at this year’s Veterans Day program, set for Mon., Nov. 12, immediately following the parade.

On Saturday, The Star-News will publish a magazine tribute to veterans, featuring the war stories of many from this area who served during times of conflict. John Vick contributed much of the content of the magazine, based on dozens of interviews he’s done with veterans.

And throughout the weekend, Huddle House restaurants throughout Alabama – including Andalusia and Florala – are honoring the military with a “sweet” gesture this Veterans Day. From Nov. 9-12, to all active duty, retired and veteran military members with a military  ID will receive a free order of Sweet Cakes during their visit.

Just ask, and show a current military ID.
