Veterans Parade! Join us to salute our local veterans!

Gather at the Downtown Owensboro Riverfront to show respect and appreciation toward the Veterans of Daviess County.  The Veterans Day parade started in 1918; when it was announced that World War II had ended.

Definitions: Veterans are men and women who have served (even for a short time), but are not currently serving, on active duty in the U.S. Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, or the Coast Guard, or who served in the U.S. Merchant Marine during World War II. People who served in the National Guard or Reserves are classified as veterans only if they were ever called or ordered to active duty, not counting the 4-6 months for initial training or yearly summer camps. All other civilians are classified as nonveterans. While it is possible for 17 year olds to be veterans of the Armed Forces, ACS data products are restricted to the population 18 years and older.

The 2013 US Census lists 7461 Veterans in Daviess County.
