Veterans Day celebrations continued in the Tri-Cities on Monday with the Veterans' Home and Grand Island Senior High's annual Veterans Parade.
From the cheers of students to the sounds of the Grand Island Unity Band, spirit ran through the streets of Grand Island's Veterans' Home.
As members of the home watched from their warm rooms, organizations and groups from around the city came to show their appreciation.
And for those who have served and continue to serve-- they say those "thank you's" mean so much.
"We serve to protect our country and to allow us to have this way of life that we have here in America. So it means a lot when somebody says thank you. And when they say thank you to me, it's not just to me, it's to everyone who serves," said Brad Steinnman, a member of the Nebraska National Guard.
Korean War Veterans were also invited to participate in the parade-- as they pay tribute to the 60th anniversary of the war.
