Members of the Georgia National Guard will be out in force, running our Veterans Memorial 5k Race. Many will be in Marietta. But the Guard is currently deployed in many places, including Iraq and Afghanistan. Those deployed Guardsmen will be running simultaneously with us, and we’ll have a live video feed on the Square.
If you cannot run, but would like to sponsor a Guard member, you can do so for $20. Our registration page has an Entry Type for this.
Our 5th Annual Veterans Memorial 5k Race and Celebration will be held Saturday May 25th, 2019. We have several events and lots of ways to be involved. Run, walk, sponsor, buy a shirt, donate, volunteer…
Hello Russ, I thought I would follow up on the “call for volunteers” that you sent out on behalf of Toy’s 4 Tots at the Marietta collection center.

Legionnaire David Thomas and his son Austin on 12/14 volunteered for several hours each. Sandy Thompson (Auxiliary Unit 29) volunteered several hours per day from 12/17 through the 21st. She also volunteered on Christmas Eve along with a friend that she brought with her to help. Jerrie Clark (Auxiliary Unit 29) put in several hours per day from 12/17 through the 20th. She brought a friend with her on the 17th also. Jackie Brodie (Auxiliary Unit 29) worked a few hours a day from 12/17 through the 21st. Legionnaire Robert King volunteered for several hours on both the 20th & 21st. I (Auxiliary Unit 29 & member of ALR Post 29) volunteered for 70.5 hours. A couple of days early in November (8 hours).
