Nothing moves me quite like the strength and resolve you sense when watching a Veterans' Parade. November 8 in downtown Hartford this annual event takes place. Want info on the parade and how to lend a hand?

What truly touches me during these parades is the span of ages of our Veterans participating and the constant reminder that Freedom Isn't Free!

Hartford is gearing up for Connecticut's Veterans' Parade. The largest event in New England happens November 8th. Veterans plus active duty military personnel and marching bands are urged to sign up now. Deadline is October 23. Click on CT VETERANS PARADE to do so.

A show of support, a wave, and a smile is the very least we can do for the countless men and women that protect our freedom.
