Veterans honored at Grand Island parade
It's been a tradition for the past 13 years in Grand Island and it will continue to be a tradition.
Nebraska's courageous men and women are honored for their service to their country, in a joint parade with the Grand Island Veterans Home and Grand Island Senior High.
"I think today as we celebrate veterans day really is an opportunity for us to say thank you to our veterans. Many were willing to sacrifice their safety and to protect our values and our freedoms that we truly hold so dearly as Nebraskans and as citizens of the United States," said Lieutenant Governor Rick Sheehy.
"During the Korean Conflict I want into service and in the air force in '51 to '55. To me that was a great duty and I'd do it again no questions asked," said veteran Don Nichols.
"We are proud, red, white and blue," said veteran Jim Boroff.
"After a number of years at war we still have men and women in the uniform who are serving our country, to bring generations of people together so that we have a much better understanding of what those that have fought in wars and also served in peacetime what they mean to us," Sheehy said.
