The 100th anniversary of Armistice Day is coming up and Armistice Day is what we know as Veterans Day on November 11th. Many across the nation look to honor the service and sacrifice of our veterans, some will even have parades.
One town looking to have a parade is Monticello. Monticello has the Veterans Parade each year to celebrate veterans said Mayor of Monticello Larry Stoner.
Monticello helped celebrate a veteran on October 20th, a World War I veteran Pvt. Roy W. Hamm, replicating the 100th anniversary of him coming home on the Monticello Railroad. Mayor Stoner said that it honored Pvt. Hamm.
The parade for Veterans Day in Monticello will kick off at 7 pm in Downtown Monticello. The ceremony will be on Main Street with guest speakers, with the parade to follow.
