Myrtle Beach celebrates Military Appreciation Days during the month of May with a full schedule of activities.  US Army Reserve Captain and 2016 Miss USA Deshauna Barber is our 2018 Grand Marshal for the Military Appreciation Days parade on Saturday, May 26.  Join us as we honor the men, women and families of our Armed Forces during the month of May. 

Captain Barber, 27, joined the US Army Reserve in 2011 and commands the 988th Quartermaster Detachment Company in Rockville, Maryland.  In December 2015, she won the Miss District of Columbia USA title.  And in Las Vegas on June 5, 2016, she was crowned Miss USA.  She has a bachelor of science from Virginia State University and a master's in computer information systems from the University of Maryland University College.  Our news release announcing Barber as this year's Grand Marshal has more information about her background and career.

Our gratitude is evident during the big Family Picnic, Saturday, May 26, in Grand Park at The Market Common.  Pease join us for lunch prepared by the Omar Shriners Chefs.  The picnic is free for all, courtesy of PGBA, LLC.  Headlining Saturday afternoon is the Andrew Thielen Big Band with a live show.  Also featured are military exhibits, kids' activities and more, including a chance to meet Deshauna! 

The Veterans March on Ocean Boulevard begins at 9:00 a.m., Monday, May 28.  This special Memorial Day event isn't a parade, so it won't feature floats or vehicles, unless a vehicle is required for veterans who are not able to walk.  This march is organized by the Combat Veterans Motorcycle Association Chapter. 

At 11:00 a.m., Monday, May 28, everyone is invited to join us for the Memorial Day Remembrance Ceremony at the Myrtle Beach Convention Center.  The annual event recognizes Memorial Day with speakers, the Missing Man Table and an honor guard salute.  The public is cordially invited to attend this and all other events, as we say "thank you" to our military men and women and their families.
