Veteran's Day parade Saturday

Tulsa's Annual Veterans Day Parade

Washington honored local veterans on Friday night with a parade through Downtown Washington, and a special recognition at the Daviess County Museum on Friday afternoon.

From parades to music festivals, Veteran's Day will be marked Saturday by a host of celebrations across Southern California.

Parade entries included area high school marching bands, Junior ROTC programs and Veterans of Foreign Wars and American Legion posts. Martinez said her husband succumbed to cancer on November 10, and November 12 is their wedding anniversary, making Veterans Day even more special to her.

In Clarksville, the theme of this year's Veterans Day Parade was "Service and Sacrifice". Boulton said they made a decision to take in the parade during one of her rare free Saturday afternoons.

Martinez attends the parade every year to remember him and all veterans, she said, including her father, who was also in the Air Force and served during the Vietnam War.

Joe Bryant, 74, of North Hollywood is a U.S. Navy petty officer third class veteran who watched the parade near the start. When asked why he felt younger generations were not as engaged, he said he felt it was because entering the armed services was voluntary. "But they're all humans".
