One of the highlights of the TBM Reunion every year is the "Salute to Veterans" Parade. This year's Salute to Veterans Parade will take place at 11:30 AM (Missing Man at Noon)
This parade salutes all of our Veterans, from World War II all the way through to Iraq & Afghanistan. This parade comes complete with color guard, flags galore, and, of course, the veterans passing by so you can give them the biggest "thank you" you can.
This is an emotional experience and one of the best events you can experience. The history, the joy, the thanks, the memories...make sure you are a part of it.
We are encouraging all veterans to participate. Don't hesitate to contact us for more info.
We will also be doing a Veteran Flag Honor Walk & Flight:
Our Veterans Parade includes a deceased veteran flag Honor Walk. We ask that anyone who had a US flag presented to them or a family loved one at their veteran's funeral bring it to the event. We'll have a family member carry this flag through our flag lined parade route with honor guards prior to our regular veteran's salute parade. These flags will then be carried aboard a TBM Avenger and flown in a missing man formation to honor your and all deceased veterans. Just bring your flag to the event and check in at our volunteer booth. Be sure to identify your flag so we can make sure it gets back to you correctly. Flags need to be logged in and ready by 11:00 on Saturday, May 20th. We sincerely encourage all who can to please participate in this moving and tribute to YOUR veteran loved one.
