Blosser said the event was held to honor Veterans, to remember their achievements, their dedication, and to thank them for their sacrifice.

“Thinking of the heroes who are here today and those who are here only in spirit, a person can’t help but feel awed by the enormity of what we see,” he said. “We stand in the midst of patriots and the family and friends of those who have nobly served in the Armed Forces.”

Greenville City Council Member Jeff Whitaker said the Pledge of Allegiance, and the Greenville High School Band performed the National Anthem and Taps. Free flags were handed out to parade attendees from DAR.
