The community will have the opportunity to honor all local veterans at the Annual Veteran's Day Parade and Program at 10 a.m. on Saturday.

The newest addition to Veteran's Memorial Park, a monument to all US prisoners of war, will also dedicated during Saturday's ceremony.

The Veterans Day Ceremony will immediately follow the parade at 7th Street and Forrest Avenue.

Men and women from all walks of life representing every branch of military service will be the guests of honor Saturday, when the city of Williston hosts the annual Levy County Veterans Day Parade.

Considering the milestones we're celebrating, it would be great to make it the best parade yet.

The Veterans Memorial Park will be situated in front of Sidner Ice Arena where the old Memorial Park was located, and will be an extension of the Eternal Flame Memorial on East Military Avenue.

Veterans at the event explained what the holiday means to them.

This year's grand marshals are World War II veterans Richard Anzalone and Norman Coury. Breakfast is on a first-come, first-served basis and proof of veteran eligibility must be shown.

Southwest Iowa is a place that shines when it comes to honoring veterans.

Those interested in donating to the Veterans Memorial Park can contact Madsen at fremontavenueofflags@yahoo.com or by phone at 402-541-4482.

"We are also looking for donor help and support for landscaping, lighting, fencing", Madsen said.

As people honor veterans, they can remain mindful that US armed forces are still fighting the war on terrorism.

"The improvements are going to be fantastic", Lerch said. During the event, five families of fallen soldiers will be presented flags to honor their loved ones' ultimate sacrifice.
