Those who served in the U.S. armed forces won’t have much trouble finding a Veterans Day event in Bryan County.
The weekend features a wide range of activities for veterans and their families. And though Veterans Day falls on a Sunday this year, Monday will be a federal and state holiday. Bryan County Schools, however, are not closed, according to the district website.
That said, many groups have something planned, and some restaurants such as Paneras in Hinesville are offering free meals to veterans on the holiday. Check online for more information. Here are events on tap this weekend:
