Marietta Veterans Day Parade


The largest Veterans Day parade Marietta has ever seen.

They traveled down Front Street to East Muskingum Park for a ceremony.

The parade was filled with many local veterans groups, including the American Legion and Mid-Ohio Valley Veterans.

For the first time the Washington County Sheriff's Office Honor Guard marched.

The group was just formed around two months ago.

Six members of the Bravo Company from Vietnam were present, as well.

Marietta Mayor Joe Matthews spoke at the ceremony.

The Marietta High School marching band was there as well, playing the National Anthem in the beginning and Amazing Grace as a closing piece.
