Veterans Day Parade planned for Biloxi this year

A Veterans Day parade along the Mississippi Gulf Coast is set to return this year.

The Gulf Coast Veteran’s Day Parade is planned for 11 a.m. on Nov. 6 in Biloxi. It will begin at the Biloxi Civic Center and end at City Hall.

The Grand Marshal for this year is Dr. Inez Kelleher, an orthopedic surgeon who has served on the Mississippi Gulf Coast since 1996.

Kelleher is a U.S. Air Force veteran, Gold Star family member and has deployed to Afghanistan and Diego Garcia in support of Operation Enduring Freedom.  This year’s parade honors the mission of all military and veteran medical first responders.

The parade is hosted in a different South Mississippi city each year.
