The director of the Office of Veterans Affairs is extending an invitation to veterans who want to take part by using their privately-owned vehicle. In an effort to discourage and prevent mass gatherings per Governor Albert Bryan Jr.’s mandates, veterans will be participating by using their own vehicle. In addition to veterans, we welcome car clubs (i.e. bug clubs, motorcycle clubs and or truck clubs). Staging information for each island is as follows:

St. John – a noon staging time, Sunday, Nov. 8, and a 1 p.m. start time from the Mongoose Junction Area

St. Croix – an 8 a.m. staging time, Wed., Nov. 11, and a 9 a.m. start time from D.C. Canegata Ballpark

St. Thomas – a 2 p.m. staging time, Wed., Nov. 11, and a 3 p.m. start time from the northern end of the Four Winds parking lot.

For more information, contact the Office of Veterans Affairs at 340-774-VETS (8387), 340-773-VETS (8387) or info_va@va.vi.gov.
