A Veteran's Take

on the parade

"Duty, honor, and love of country span many generations of Americans; causes and outcomes may differ, but sacrifice and hardship are shared equally. I was touched, I was moved, and I came away from the parade feeling better about my sacrifice that was so many years removed from the present. Thanks to you and . . . the Edina community for making this July 4th the best one that I've ever experienced."

That's what one Vietnam veteran wrote to the Edina Parade Planning Committee after participating in the 4th of July Parade. As plans are finalized for the 2019 parade, scheduled for 10 a.m. July 4th, the committee seeks more veterans to be part of this special community event.

"The Edina 4th of July Parade Committee invites you to join us as we celebrate our Nation's birth and recognize our veterans for the contribution and service to their country."
