Veterans Day is coming up very soon. The nation will be preparing to salute those who served in the active military, naval, or air service. These men and women deserve the utmost respect.

An event I adore is the yearly Tuscaloosa Veterans Day program. It has been held at the Tuscaloosa County Park & Recreation Authority’s Veterans Memorial Park. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this fantastic event will become a drive-in only situation.

“Considering the need for extra safety and social distancing during this time, the program will be a drive-in only event,” said COL Duane Lamb, chairman of the Veterans Memorial Park Association.

An Alabama native will serve as the keynote speaker. From Marion, Alabama Major General William S. Lee Commanding General, 3d Medical Command. “MG Lee’s career of distinguished service includes a variety of medical and military command assignments.”
