Parade to Honor Veterans Scheduled for Today

A parade to honor armed forces veterans has been organized for Knox today. Terry Turner, one of the organizers tells us about it.

“They’re going to line up at 12:45 p.m. and there are a few more entries this year,” said Turner. “Hensler’s is coming with an antique car for Trees for Troops. We are going to honor the three men that died in Iraq Sergeant Joseph Ford, Corporal Nathaniel Baughman and Specialist Michael Weissman.”

Turner talked about what will be happening at the courthouse square.

“Nancy Dembowski will be coming, Mayor Rick Chambers will be here, a representative from Congressman Joe Donnelly’s office will say some words, and we’ll have a speaker. I’ll be explaining why we’re dedicating things to the three men who died.”

This is the second year for the parade. The parade units will be accompanied by the Indiana Patriot Guard troops.
