With the passing of William E. Dietzel on Mar. 21, will his legacy of having the largest Veterans Day parade west of the Mississippi remain intact?
This year's grand marshals on Monday, Nov. 11, will be the World War II veterans, the Greatest Generation, whose numbers are dwindling every day. To present them with a celebratory salute will further boost their spirits and give them something to smile about.
This Veterans Day, let's show our support of veterans past and present and those still in Afghanistan and other countries around the world. Show, too, what this nation means to you and what William E. Dietzel meant to our community.
God bless America.
