The national committee, who oversees the planning and coordination of the Veterans Day observance, has selected the Phoenix VA Health Care System's VA Veterans Day Parade as a Regional Site to honor America’s Veterans. With a theme of "Healing Wounds, Honoring Their Sacrifice" the parade boasts 100 entries, including several large helium balloons like the Bald Eagle and Uncle Sam.
Celebrity Grand Marshal is Entertainer Wayne Newton who serves as Chairman of the USO’s Celebrity Circle. Veteran Grand Marshals are those who have fought in various conflicts including World War II, the Korean War, Vietnam, and Operations Enduring and Iraqi Freedom. Veterans' organizations, floats, bands, military vehicles, color guards, a military flyover and the 108th Army National Guard Band are also part of this family friendly activity.
The VA Veterans Day Parade is an educational forum to highlight the significance of the more than 300,000 Veterans in Maricopa County who defended our freedoms.
