MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Friday’s Veteran’s Day, when we thank those who have served our country in the military.
Folks across the Mid-South celebrated with parades, and honored service members with ceremonies.
The city of Bartlett honored veterans Friday morning with a dedication ceremony at Veterans Park. Dozens of people and veterans gathered together as city leaders honored those who served.
United States Congressman David Kustoff spoke, and the Appling Middle School band performed.
People were also able to buy a brick to honor a veteran and have it placed in the memorial.
Downtown Memphis parade
In downtown Memphis, American Legion Post 27 held its annual Veterans' Day parade.
It has been three years since the group has been able to hold this parade, honoring those that fought for our freedom.
“For the ones that didn't serve, we just want to let you know, we stand up for you guys. Because without y'all, we wouldn't be nobody and stuff. We just want to let y'all know, we're all in this together. Whether you honor the Marines or neighbor, we're all one big happy family,” said Charles Brown Lee, a Marine veteran.
