Veterans Day Parade 2019

The full Veterans Day Parade, held at Vancouver Barracks, Vancouver, Washington November 9, 2019


  1. Since the early 2000's, the Remembrance Day(what you call Veteran's Day) ceremonies were held indoors at a hockey rink in my small NB town. There is always a good sized crowd, over 2000. However, not surprisingly, the number of WWII/Korean vets attending is dwindling rapidly over the last few years. Of the 4 that did take part, 3 were from a nursing home. Big change over the past decade.

  2. Prior to the parade, there is a ceremony held honoring Veterans. This year, there was also an after parade reception held indoors at a neighboring High School. I was too tired to attend.

    And yes, the numbers of WW2 and Korean Veterans are dwindling rapidly as their ages are well up in years today.

    Fortunately, many of their stories have been recorded for future generations.


Opposing views are welcomed. I don't expect everyone to agree with me and opposing views can be healthy in discussions. Use some discretion and post like an adult, though. Don't assume this is a 'free speech' zone. I will delete any grossly over the top comments, those highjacking the posts or that are irrelevant to the post and of course, spam.
