My dad was a Veteran, having served in the Navy where he learned his trade as a transmission mechanic.

If you want to salute our Veteran's, don't miss the annual parade in West Richland Saturday November 11th.

The parade will start at 9:30 A.M. and run along Van Giesen street. There will also be a chili feed at the end of the parade at the Flat Top Pavilion.

There is also a great statewide website for Veteran's Day Parades if you are traveling away from the Tri-Cities this weekend.
