The CCVO has selected four veterans to serve as the Co-Grand Marshals for the 2013 Anniston Veterans Day Parade. Three of the veterans served during World War II. The fourth veteran served during the Korean War.

“People interested in volunteering to help Anniston have a successful 2013 Veterans Day Parade are invited to join the CCVO at our weekly meetings,” said Committee Chairperson Linda Peters. “We meet on Mondays at 7 p.m. at the American Legion Post No. 26 on 18th Street behind Stringfellow Memorial Hospital.”

Peters also said, “Our community Veterans Day Parade in Anniston will give local residents and visitors the perfect opportunity to honor veterans and express the collective appreciation of the community for the men and women who have served our nation in a military uniform. We hope everyone feels welcome to join in the annual tribute to our local veterans on Veterans Day, Monday, Nov. 11.”
