This year’s parade theme is “Duty, Honor, Sacrifice: Celebrating Our  World War II Veterans.”  The Phoenix Veterans Day Parade will mark the 70th anniversary of  the Invasion of Normandy in celebrating our World War II Veterans with a flyover by WWII Biplanes flown by Fred Gorrell and his Thunder Flying Group.  

Join the Phoenix community as it honors America’s brave men and women from every generation and conflict, who have sacrificed and risked their lives to preserve our freedom.

    “Salon Attacks Military, White People, American Culture On Eve Of Veterans Day
    Salon manages to offend not only the military, purposely so on the eve of Veterans Day, but also manages to insult all Americans and the United States, by the end of the first sentence. But it shows the unvarnished progressive view of the military, what they really think.”

    Via Salon:
    “Put a man in uniform, preferably a white man, give him a gun, and Americans will worship him. It is a particularly childish trait, of a childlike culture, that insists on anointing all active military members and police officers as “heroes.” The rhetorical sloppiness and intellectual shallowness of affixing such a reverent label to everyone in the military or law enforcement betrays a frightening cultural streak of nationalism, chauvinism, authoritarianism and totalitarianism, but it also makes honest and serious conversations necessary for the maintenance and enhancement of a fragile democracy nearly impossible.”

    its unfortunate that those who publish drivel like this have their right to do so protected by the very people they hate, including far too many who have given their life while doing so.

    While far from adequate for all you do, have done or will do in the future, Thank You to Americas Veterans and Service Members who have been there and will continue to be there for me and my country.
