Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans The parade will step off, Sunday November 7th, 2 pm at S 21st and K street heading west to S 14th street.
This year please join us in celebrating the service of our Vietnam War Veterans. So many of our past heroes are left feeling unappreciated and misunderstood. It is never to late in thanking them for their service and sacrifice. Leading the line with our national colors are the Marine Corps League Color Guard. Next are 2 Vietnam War Veterans, Roy Schoen and Jaime Obrecht, as our Parade Grand Marshals. Following them will be the honored guest speaker UNL President Ted Carter, Navy Admiral. Parade line will halt at the Capitol Building. Grand Marshals take their seats at the Review Stand before opening remarks are made. At conclusion of the National Anthem, the parade line continues. There will be live TV coverage of the parade. Radio DJs will be stationed at Purdue Global (Antelope Parkway) and the Capital Fountain (Capitol Bldg north side) for parade entry announcements and commentary. COVID-19 precautions and restrictions may be in effect.
