|The Chair's Message|
Welcome to the Dallas Veterans Day Parade Committee. I am indeed honored to be the Chair for the 2016 Veterans Day Ceremony and Parade, to be held in downtown Dallas.
This annual event is organized and conducted by volunteers, who devote their time and efforts to honor our military servicemen and women, past and present.
We are especially grateful for the support of the City of Dallas, without whom this event could not occur.
Many corporations and individuals throughout the Dallas area assist us, each year, to help make it possible to present Dallas’ patriotic Veterans Day Parade. We deeply appreciate the participation and support of more than 100 military and veteran organizations, within our community.
You are encouraged to take the time to review this website. And you are invited to join us by participating in this event with your time, talent or contributions. We invite you to contact us via any of the telephone numbers you see below.
Join us in showing your appreciation to the military veterans of all of our nation’s armed forces - Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force, Coast Guard, and Merchant Marines. We salute all those who are serving, those who have served, and those who have made the ultimate sacrifice.
Welcome to our Veteran’s Day activities. Be there on FRIDAY, November 11th, 2016, in downtown Dallas, as we honor our veterans on their special day.
