National Veterans Award Dinner
A perpetual National Veterans Award was created in Birmingham for America’s first official National Veterans Day observance November 11, 1954 as authorized by Congress. Its purpose is to honor an outstanding veteran in the United States each year who has made the greatest contribution to further the patriotic interests of veterans and veteran organizations throughout the country. Every year, the award is presented at the National Veterans Award Dinner in Birmingham.
This year, the National Veterans Award Dinner will be on the evening of November 10th, in the Sheraton Downtown Birmingham Ballroom, at 2101 Richard Arrington Blvd. This year, we are honoring those service members who have participated in the Covid 19 response. The events will begin at 5:00pm, with a reception prior to the awards dinner. Face coverings are recommended, but not required, for the event. Efforts to social distance are recommended. We look forward to having you join us as we celebrate our nation’s true superheroes.
