Many celebrate our veterans in the Prosser parade

Posted: Updated:

PROSSER, Wash.—Many celebrated our veterans at the 6th annual Prosser Veteran Parade.  Attendees played music, sang, carried signs and shared stories.

"That was in July 1959 when we started from Death Valley and climbed to the top of Mount. Whitney," says Miguel Pinedal, Veteran.

Pinedal says he has a great appreciation for those involved in the parade.  Participants also had stories to tell of their family and friends who have fought for our country.

"We are participating because my husband is over seas currently in Iraq," says Deborah Baggerly, Participant.

Even those who may be too young to understand our veterans accomplishments, had tales to tell of the great parade.  One girl says the trucks were her favorite part, because they go fast and slow.

However, the parade wasn't about the trucks, music, signs, and stories.  They help make the parade, but the real attractions were the veterans and the gratitude the Prosser community shares.
