VA selects Coffee County as regional site for Veterans Day activities Submitted photo

The City of Douglas and Coffee County are honored to announce that Coffee County has been selected as regional site for the 2023 Veterans Day Commemoration Activities by the Veterans Day National Committee of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. This year, Veterans Day ceremonies recognized by VA will be held in 66 communities throughout 34 states and the District of Columbia to honor the Nation’s Veterans. Coffee County is one of only five selected sites in Georgia.



Each year, the Veterans Day National Committee—comprised of representatives from nearly 50 organizations dedicated to serving and supporting America’s Veterans—hosts the annual Veterans Day observance at Arlington National Cemetery. In our community, our schools and organizations host Veterans Day events. As a part of the designation, all veterans are asked to attend as many of the programs as possible.  A list of the programs (as of 10-27-2023) are listed below:

Each approved regional site receives a supply of official Veterans Day posters, military ceremonial support from the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD), and a certificate from the Secretary of Veterans Affairs for inclusion in the official program. Georgia Governor Brian P. Kemp will be notified of the selection and military ceremonial support may be available for the activities.



Coffee High School needs veterans to help support their Interactive Veterans Museum to help create awareness, enthusiasm, and respect for our nation, armed forces, and veterans.
