14th Annual Armed Forces Parade - WSLS 10 NBC in Roanoke/Lynchburg Va

14th Annual Armed Forces Parade

Posted: Updated:
Veterans at the Virginia Veterans Care Center aren't able to go to parades so volunteers brought the parade to their front lawn.

Members of the ROTC and several military vehicles and various floats went around the Salem VA Medical Center on Saturday.

"It was wonderful and talking to one of our partners from the va she said there might have been 3-4 participants 14 years ago so to have 32-33 participating to honor our veterans was tremendous" Lisa Thompson  Red Cross Regional Director said.

The event is sponsored by the VA Hospital, Virginia Veterans Care and The American Red Cross.
