In announcing the parade plans Vietnam Veterans of America State President Dennis Howland said, “we routinely hold the parade on the Saturday closest to Veterans Day so that people who work during the week are able to come out and enjoy the day. We anticipate several thousand people will line the streets to honor all veterans of peacetime and war,” he added. “We encourage the message of “Thank You For Your Service and Welcome Home for all our men and women who have served and those who serve today to ensure our freedoms and democracy.” This year’s program will feature honoring the service members who served in our Middle East Conflicts including Afghanistan as Parade Grand Marshals. “That includes the active-duty men and women in the Armed Forces today and those who are no longer on active duty”, Howland reports. Parade requirements are simple.
