This is your opportunity to welcome home veterans of all eras and our current returning military from combat zones while discovering continuing areas of outreach and support that you can join. Please save the date and join our community at River Park Square in a day of sharing before celebrating more at the Torchlight Parade.

Let’s show our military community that we appreciate their service and welcome them all home!
