Annually, members of Al Tariq Temple #245 gather with the Cobb County community on Veterans Day to honor and recognize our men and women of the Armed Forces for their outstanding bravery, courage and sacrifices made protecting our country and our freedoms. Legionnaires constantly remind communities that freedom and prosperity come with a price, a price often paid with the ultimate sacrifice.
This year’s event is being co-hosted by members of American Legion Post 296 and Al Tariq Temple #245 Ancient Egyptian Arabic Order Nobles Mystic Shrine (A.E.A.O.N.M.S.) Desert of Georgia, Oasis of Marietta, GA.
