LONG BEACH, MS (WLOX) -
On Veterans Day many people came out to Long Beach and said thank you to the men and women who have and continue to serve our country. The 2nd Annual Long Beach Veterans Parade and Celebration kicked off at 1p.m. Sunday afternoon at War Memorial Park.
Soldiers marched to the beat of applause and gratitude as America's flags were held in the hands of many, symbolizing more than just independence.
Rosie Austin said, "It means freedom."
Another parade goer said, "It means we are free."
Geri Harp added, "Freedom. It shows that we are free. Even though we may have some issues here and there, we are still free compared to the rest of the world."
From Boy Scouts to Seabees, America's heroes paraded down Jeff Davis Avenue waving, throwing beads and showing their appreciation for all that came out in support.
Harp said, "It's important to show everybody that we care. Even though they may be long out, it's just important to show we love our country."
Veteran Geri Harp served in the Air Force during Vietnam. She said while supporting her fellow servicemen on this day, she too felt appreciated for her time serving our country.
Harp said, "It feels good. It feels good, it kind of gives you that extra little tingle to know that people care. Especially seeing all the older vets in the parade that came out, and see them and give them respect."
From World War II vets in the Army to those serving in the Navy in the 1940's, patriotic colors and cheers greeted them the entire way.
Austin said, "It's very important for them to come out and represent the Veterans for what they do for you when they are over seas."
One child said, "Happy Veterans Day!"
The parade was sponsored by the First United Methodist Church of Long Beach.
