Veterans Day Parade is held in honor of those who fought for us for so many years, in many long and short, close and faraway wars, all made in the name of freedom, equality, and the first and foremost right for peace and prosperity, given by nature to every living being.
The USA had to face many hard wars, and there are many heroes walking around among us, some of them may be unknown, may not even seem at first sight as important, but each and every one of them has a story to tell, and that story lives on with them every day. Veterans Day Parade is a chance to pay tribute to those heroes, known and less knows, hear their stories, share their experience, and honor them with respect.
