East Helena Veterans Parade

Posted: Updated:

At 11 AM this morning Veterans, Students, and citizens lined up and down Main Street in East Helena to enjoy the Annual Veterans Day Parade. Veterans Affairs from Fort Harrison helped with the parade which lead to a ceremony at Main Street Park.

Director of Veterans Affairs for the Montana Healthcare System, Johnny Ginnity says, "One of the things why I thought it was important to be here today is I have been fortunate to be part of the Air Force for 24 years and I recently retired and I wanted to continue to serve our Veterans through working with the Veterans Administration, and coming out here today just allows us to pay tribute to those service men and women who have served before us and who are continuing to serve and also to thank their families for the support and the community for their support."

The ceremony at Main Street Park included a message from Congressman Steve Daines in regards to him thanking all those who have served and is happy to be serving Montana citizens. After the parade and ceremony the public was invited to a lunch with the Veterans.
