Posted by wlpo on November 5, 2012

An era of veteran’s that most would argue have never been given their just due were thanked by thousands in Utica.

The sixth annual Utica Veteran’s Day Parade was dedicated to Vietnam War veterans.  Thousands lined downtown Utica to take in a parade that featured well over 150 entries.  During the parade there were two different military fly-overs.

After the festive parade, attention turned to Danny Carey Memorial Park for a memorial ceremony.  Marine Corps veteran Roger Reynolds of Ottawa was the featured speaker.
