Hundreds of Columbus and Phenix City residents enjoyed the 4th annual veterans parade through Uptown Columbus this morning. Several Junior ROTC programs along with high school bands and veterans groups joined in the celebration. A retired army ranger shares his view of the experience.
"Freedom. Freedom from a lot of things. I've been in a lot of countries and you just can't enjoy the freedom we have in America if it wasn't for veterans. It means a lot," said Milton Lockett.
Lockett hopes the parade continues to grow each year. Veterans Day is Monday November 11th.
