Supporting our Troops – Honoring our Veterans
The Veterans Day Parade of Milwaukee, Inc. is proud to announce that plans for the 52nd annual parade are underway with the return of the TransCanada Corporation as the Presenting Sponsor.
In 2014, the parade was in jeopardy of being cancelled due to lack of funding when local news coverage brought it to the attention of TransCanada. TransCanada stepped in with a $20,000.00 contribution to keep the parade going and they are returning as the Presenting Sponsor this year.
The 2015 Veterans Day Parade will take place on Saturday, November 7th at 1100 in downtown Milwaukee. Special Guests of Honor will be Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom veterans.
Grand Marshall will be Alan Lewis. Pfc. Alan Jermaine Lewis was a machine-gunner with the 3rd Infantry Division and served in Operation Iraqi Freedom. He was severly wounded in 2003 after his Humvee hit a land mine in Baghdad.
We are also proud to announce that FOX6 will be the exclusive television media partner of the Veterans Day Parade. Here is a complete listing of all of our gracious sponsors.
The Veterans Day Parade will also have a new look this year. Honor Our Military, Inc., the organizers of the Veterans Day Parade, decided to adopt a new logo after the theft of their computer Memorial Day weekend. Local graphic artist Kathy Sena designed the logo for the organization after hearing about the theft. Thank you Kathy for your time and talent.
Please Note: The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel erroneously reported that a Day of Honor reception including a hot meal, entertainment and prizes would be held for veterans and those currently serving. This reception is for the members of veterans groups or military units that march in the parade. We unfortunately do not have the space or financial resources to do this for all veterans in the Milwaukee area. Please watch this site for information on restaurants and businesses offering meals and deals to veterans on Veterans Day , November 11. We apologize for an inconvenience this misinformation may have caused.
