El Paso area veterans organizations, auxiliaries and private veterans groups are invited/needed to participate in a parade next month.

According to a press release from the Welcome Home El Paso Vietnam Veterans Event Committee, the WHVVEC is:

inviting your organization to participate in the Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Parade on Sunday, August 28th, in downtown El Paso. Assembly time is no later than 9:00am. Even though the parade does not start until 10:00am, the feeder streets for the line up will be closed early by the police. We encourage all organizations to enter a float anyway. Floats make a parade.

The theme for this year's parade is "El Paso Welcomes Home Their Vietnam Veterans". There are many events planned for the month of August and there is no fee to enter this year's parade. If you have any questions or need more info, call (915) 227-8617, email rway@elp.rr.com or, click here.
