Military members honored at Veteran's Day Parade

WICHITA FALLS, TX (KAUZ) -

The Wichita Falls community celebrated our veterans and the sacrifices they have made for our country.

Saturday morning, downtown Wichita Falls was filled with cars, flags, schools, and the First Alert 6 weather team for the Wichita Falls Veteran's Day parade.

All branches of service were there, many taking part in the parade themselves.

One vet took part with the veterans organization, American Legion.

"It's our freedom," said U.S. Army Veteran, Ray Sluder.  "If we don't support our veterans, nobody will and it's time for people to stand up.  This is what the parade is for.  It's for it's for the veterans."

The parade started on Indiana Avenue and wrapped around downtown.

We here at Newschannel six want to thank all of those who are serving or have served in our military.

If you or someone you know is either serving or has served our country in the military and would like to be featured on our Heroes of Texoma segment, send us an email to news@kauz.com

"He was 98, or 99 years old and he was going home where he had been looking forward to being. Last few years he talked about how eager he was to be back with his wife."
