24-hour watch at Florida Vietnam Memorial completed
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) - The 24-hour watch at the Florida Vietnam Memorial began at 11 a.m. Wednesday ahead of the Tallahassee Veterans Day Parade.
Cadets from the Florida State University Army ROTC program stood guard downtown throughout the night, as people stopped by to pay their respects.
“I heard that they were having the guard at the Vietnam Memorial, and I just wanted to bring my mom out and take a moment to ponder, remember and appreciate,” Tina Mason said.
The watch ended at 11 a.m. Thursday with a 21-gun salute, just before the Veterans Day Parade kicked off.
