Once again we will be celebrating Veterans Day on Nov. 11. Each year the parade seems to get a little larger and the wonderful crowds who come out to salute the veterans seems to grow, as well. It is hard to describe the feeling of pride that each veteran has when he or she marches down Lincoln Way and is saluted by our fine citizens. This year we salute women in the military. With an ever-expanding role in today’s military, women have taken their rightful place in all facets of defending our country both past and present. Come and salute them. Finally, to my fellow Vietnam vets, I will see you at the top of Lincoln Way. I urge all vets who have not marched in this fine event to come out. You have earned it. Larry P.
