Show Your Support for Veteran’s Day

flag1Veteran’s Day is Tuesday, November 11th, and the city of Long Beach is celebrating this weekend with a special parade and festival. The 18th Annual Long Beach Veterans Day Parade is Saturday, November 8th. It is a great way to honor the men and women that have served our country in all branches of the military.flag3

The parade includes close to 100 groups that will march to the theme of “A Salute to Those Who Have Served.” The participants will include local city council members and many veterans who have served in all of the military branches.

The Grand Marshal is Stephen J. Peck who is a veteran of the Vietnam War and heads a group called U.S. Vets, which helps vets find housing and get other essential services. Eric Cornell, a Long Beach police officer and Navy reservist, has been named the parade’s honorary grand marshal

Every year, there is an incredible turnout for this parade and the other festivities that are included in the event. It brings together the community to honor those that have protected our freedom, rights, and country. We look forward to joining in the festivities this weekend and seeing many of those in our community who have served in wars.
