He said the parade “helps keeps the plight of the veteran in the public eye.”
The parade will begin at 10 a.m. on Main Street and end at the Williamson County Fairgrounds where a memorial ceremony will be held honoring all veterans, first responders, medical personnel, 9/11 heroes, those who sacrificed their lives for their country.
