  1. Hi, I go to Hillgrove High School, and I am in the JROTC unit and we were looking for a parade to be able to march in. If this is okay, please contact me through my e-mail so we can talk. Thank you!

  2. Please advise on correct date of parade. Is it the second Saturday in November, the 9th or is it on Veterans Day, the 11th?

  3. I hope it is not too late but my company would love to have a float and or a tent. Can someone contact me soon if possible. Thanks!

  4. I am looking for military vehicles to be static displayed at a veterans event on June 9th, 2018 at Southern Devil Harley Davidson.

    This is a pro-veteran event, Veterans Helping Veterans and all proceeds are going to Healing for Heroes, that provide service dogs to veterans in need of certified service dogs.
