Hundreds of people in Marietta filled the streets Tuesday morning for a parade.

Veterans, their families and many others watched the event before heading over to the armory for a veterans service.

Veterans say it's a nice way to remember those who gave their lives for their country, as well as honoring local veterans and the men and women currently serving.

"I know there was times in the past when veterans came home and they weren't received very well, but things have really started to change and people really appreciate what the veterans have done for this country," Howard Yost, a retiree of the U.S. Air Force, said.
