     We're always updating information on our website. So if you've visited our website before, please hold the "ctrl" (control button) and hit refresh manually to refresh your web browsers, so that you have the most updated information.  For some reason if you're using a laptop, even if you refresh it's not updating unless you hold down the "ctrl" button while hitting refresh, we are working on to see if we can automatically refresh the webpage. I noticed that I had to do this on all the pages from March Day Info to Directions and Maps, we are hoping to work on something that will automatically refresh the website and it's pages when there's updates, but until that is done you may have to hold down the "ctrl" (control button) while hitting refresh to see the updates. In the event of Severe weather we will have to reschedule, we will update our social media pages and website as soon as possible if that happens. We are also in the process of having t-shirts made up for Veterans United March through a local veteran owned business in O'Fallon, MO. They've sent us a design, we approved it and paid, they said we'd send us an email with the online store over this weekend. We are a grassroots group so we do not have funding for TV commercials and ads, so we appreciate your help spreading the word about Veterans United March, outreach and rally. We have used our own funds to run a few ads on Twitter and Facebook (not many) to help spread the word, but we appreciate all the word of mouth and help we can get letting folks know about this event. Thank you!



There is a "Help button" under the "Helpful Info button" that has some contact information, such as the Veterans Crisis Line, Veterans organizations, American Red Cross for making Emergency contact with your servicemember and a few other things.  Thank you, and thank you for your service!



The Veterans United March will be held Saturday, October 6th, 2018 starting at 12pm/noon. The main staging area will be Luther Ely Smith park/Arch grounds as that is our main headquarters for this event, and for those who wish to march we will leave Luther Ely Smith park/Arch grounds at 12pm/Noon and march up Chestnut to Soldiers Memorial and return back by looping down Market street and return to Luther Ely Smith square onto the Arch grounds, so that everyone is included, and knows about what is happening real-time. Soldiers Memorial is still under renovation until after our event, closer to Veterans day, also they have redone the St. Louis Arch grounds, the entrances to the Arch and Luther Ely Smith park is near where this has all taken place. Here is a few links, but there's more information on other pages on the website. We have not posted any of the new pictures on the website yet of how the new makeover is, but it is very spacious and will accomodate everyone. We do have a permit for our event and have been talking to the Federal Parks office and the City of St. Louis Special Events office, we will be at Luther Ely Smith Park/Arch grounds on Saturday October 6th 2018. If for any reason something major happens such as severe weather, etc, we will update our social media and website. We are having t-shirts made up through a local veteran owned business for those who would like to purchase and wear one for Veterans United March. It is not mandatory, you can wear what you like, some may wear what Org they belong to, or whatever, but the Local veteran owned business in O'Fallon, MO sent us a picture of what they look like and they're trying to fit the date on them so they said they would send everything over the weekend.

They should be sending us a link to order t-shirts through their online store, they were trying to see if they could get the date October 6th 2018 or at least 2018 on the t-shirts. Here is a few links to what they look like, we posted them on social media but have to get them uploaded on here for everyone to see along with the link to the store as soon as we hear from back from them. We've already paid to start work, so we should be hearing something over the weekend is what they told us. Here is links to pictures of the t-shirts on social media:

We have permits and have been in contact with Federal and City, but we need to give updates on our attendance calculations closer to the date. We do have a Facebook event that you can mark as attending.  We know there are many groups, nonprofits that help, but sometimes we're just unaware of each other, we're trying to bridge that divide. If you belong to an organization or group and would like to set-up a table please feel free to reach out. We're trying to bring our resources together in a central location to help one another in our communities and throughout our Country while bringing public awareness to issues affecting veterans, military and their families.

 We'd like to make sure every veteran who is unaware of what a VSO (Veteran's Service Officer, accredited through the VA, to help you with appeals, hearing aids, etc) is aware of these benefits and services to one another, as often many don't know what to do if they're in need of help, or how to go about it, it's free of charge so don't ever let anyone charge you, it is free of charge to all US Veterans, families, survivors, and to many are unaware of how this system works, or how to go about getting anything done. We have several Veterans' issues that are affecting our communities, there's a host of things. We're going to get some tables up with folks who can help, this will be available at Luther Ely Smith park (we will keep it updated if it changes) please make sure to refresh your web browser closer to the event on October 6th, 2018. Also I'd recommend anytime you come back to the website to refresh your browser on each page, just to be on the safe side. We have invited other Veteran/Military groups to join us and set-up a table too, and we're hoping to bring public awareness to what is going on in our daily lives and struggles even.

We will muster/meet in Luther Ely Smith Park/Arch grounds to since Soldiers Memorial is under renovation, and if for some reason there is a delay in law enforcement showing up, we are all in the same place and know where one another are. There will be some folks who are unable to physically do the march, and that's okay, we're just glad to see you. There will also be folks in attendance at some of the tables and our set-up at the Rally point too. We will hold a brief rally after the march in that same area with speakers and information, we will tables there and everything as mentioned too. The Veterans United March is wheelchair accessible as we will be using the very large city streets and will march directly onto the newly renovated Luther Ely Smith park near the St. Louis Arch. There will be porta potties and a handwashing station on the side of the park that is closest to 4th and Market streets, this includes handicapped accessible porta potties as well. We will have law enforcement in attendance for everyone's safety participating, commuters so they're not inconvenienced, to help direct/divert traffic and block roads as needed when we come through marching, and to help make sure everything is peaceful and non-violent.
