‘Abbreviated’ Veterans Day ceremony in Gloucester

Veterans Day is next week, and although the coronavirus pandemic has canceled many observances, one will still be going on, although in a subdued fashion.

The Middle Peninsula Detachment #1317 of the Marine Corps League and American Legion Post #75 will host “a very abbreviated ceremony” at 1 p.m. next Wednesday, Nov. 11, at the American Legion post headquarters, off Route 17 south of Gloucester Court House, according to a Marine Corps League release.

Traditionally, the ceremony was held at the Gloucester Veterans’ Memorial Wall in front of the courthouse.

Mathews American Legion Post #83, which usually holds a Veterans Day Dinner and Awards Ceremony at the post in Hudgins, has had to cancel this year’s event.
