Veterans Wanted in Parade
Local Vietnam veterans have reserved a position in this year’s Patriot’s Day Parade, scheduled for 11 a.m. Saturday, March 5, and organizers are seeking fellow vets to join the group and walk in the six-block long parade. This group has participated in the parade since 1985.
Veterans are encouraged to wear old uniforms and meet near Laguna Beach High School, 625 Park Avenue, between 9 and 10 a.m. Ask at the Check in Booth, corner of Park and Short Street, to learn the group’s location. The group disperses to the Marine Room on Ocean Avenue afterwards.
