Every year, the Hampton Roads Council of Veterans Organizations sponsors a parade, ceremony and luncheon in Virginia Beach to honor veterans and ST Patrick’s Division is a regular participant. Following the parade, the Division was also represented at a ceremony honoring veterans at the Tidewater Veterans Memorial and a luncheon at a nearby hotel.
The attached photo shows division members and veterans with the division’s High Cross. From left to right is: George McCarthy, Mark Monagahn, Mike Wein (DIV President), Herm Banks, and Pat O’Donnell.
