On Tuesday, the nation honored all who have served in the military. This year, Cleveland remembered its service men and women with its first Veterans Day parade.”Veterans Still Serving” was the theme of the parade. As the procession marched down the streets of downtown Cleveland, they also stepped into history, marking the first veterans parade the city has ever seen.
For years, the city has held a Veterans Day celebration at City Hall and Public Square, but this is the first recorded Veterans Day parade. Without the work of one Cleveland police officer, it may have never happened.
