Saturday November 11th is Veterans Day and Albany will be sponsoring once again the largest Veterans Day parade west of the Mississippi. Some of you many not know this but the parade was originally sponsored by the Santiam Detachment. This year we have the honor of leading the parade with a color guard from Santiam Detachment 374. While doing some research I found this today. A blast from the past! A news article about the parade published in the Albany Democrat Herald November 9th, 2013. Guess whose picture was in the article.
Clicking the picture in the news article about the Veterans Day parade in 2013 takes you to an article about Santiam Detachments Marine Corps Birthday Celebration Dinner in 2013.
