Grand Marshal, Captain (Ret.) Marj Graves, a Vietnam veteran Army nurse, and her husband Bob, an Army Vietnam vet, will lead the return of the Kentucky Veterans Day Parade and Celebration.
This year’s event will be the largest undertaking yet. The convoy leads off at 9 a.m. in Middletown and Fern Valley with the official parade stepping off at 7th and Jefferson at noon. Visitors can then enjoy the static displays and entertainment for the celebration.
Captain Graves’s presence is particularly noteworthy as the event honors the 75th anniversary of the signing of the Women’s Armed Forces Integration Act.
