Blessed with a warm and sunny day, plenty of people lined the streets for the 14th annual Trigg County Veterans Day Parade and filled the seats for the program after the parade on Monday.

Frank “Skip” Boone, the Grand Marshal for this year’s parade, told an audience that communities who care about veterans mean more than a soldier can express. A Vietnam veteran, he talked about his first Christmas away from family in 1966.

“It was on a river in Vietnam with some buddies, and that day they decided to have the chaplain have a little Christmas service on a large supply boat in the river. Well after the service, we stay around for a Christmas meal,” said Boone. “Well, when we came out of the chow hall, a fella handed us a green canvas sack, an old tie sack, on the outside was a little note that said ‘Season’s Greetings from a small county somewhere in Pennsylvania.’”
