Wakulla County, FL -- November 5, 2011

Proud VETS, families and supporters piled up in downtown Wakulla county this morning. It was all for the 5th annual Veteran's Day Parade and Celebration.

After the parade sifted through, people gathered up at Hudson Park for a dose of live entertainment, game booths, crafts and more. Local veteran Sid Winchester said, "The parade was really great, people were out in big numbers and they were really appreciative of all the vehicles and parade participants. It was a great parade."

It was hosted by the Wakulla Christian School and the Wakulla County Veteran's Services Office. They say all of the proceeds from the event will go to support local veteran's programs.

    The best part was the Confederate Soldiers firing off their rounds of ammunition! What about it Tallahassee? You are going to give them a spot in YOUR festivities - right?

    I do not know the proper protocol, but I see it as our Veterans are so special that they are "escorted" in by the local "protectors". Meaning the Sheriff's Dept. because our wonderful Veterans have "protected" us, now it's our turn to lead them in to be Honored. I had the gracious priveledge to see my uncle's picture (my Dad's Brother who died two months before I was born) and his name be Honored in this parade by my Dad driving in it proudly diplaying it on his convertable. This was so special to my family and my children to see this. So why would anyone complain or put this special event down? This was put on by the Wakulla Christian School and the Veteran's Services, I know for a fact they did their BEST. It was a great event.

    Typical. Here are people in My Country bickering over who gets more spotlight or looks better in the parade. Vets arent or never will ask for front and center coverage. The fact that we are remembered at all is what counts. Second , if you really want a way for America to say thank you.........assist Vets in getting decent jobs when they come home. For a guy home from serving this Nation it is humiliating to turn around and have to ask for an EBT card , while certain people , aka drug dealers get free phones , free satelite , and drive 40 thousand dollar cars. makes you think.

    That is a horrible accusation. Law Enforcement always come out first in Tallahassee. Considering that a sheriff almost lost his life last week, you should be ashamed!

    It was a Veteran's Parade not a Sheriff's parade. The Vet's should have been first to come out not the sheriff's trucks & boat

      I agree, the veterans on the bikes were burning clutches because they could not maintain a slow pace. They should have been first because it was all for them.
