Veterans Day Peir Walk Today
On Veterans Day today you have the opportunity to honor our veterans while simultaneously benefitting a good cause. The inaugural Veterans Day pier walk will be held at the ken combs pier Wednesday at 4 pm. Donations will benefit the gulf coast public safety feed the needy. An organization that provides meal on Thanksgiving and Christmas the two days that feed my sheep in Gulfport does not serve. Although this is the first year for the Veterans Day pier walk, it’s modeled after the inaugural Earth Day pier walk. We created it in 2012, a few years after my father passed. We just wanted to give back to the community and honor all loved ones and help others at the same time. Combs tells news 25, they felt this was an important cause and the two go hand and hand honoring veterans and collecting for those who need it, especially because a large portion of our homeless community here on the coast are veterans.
