To The Herald-Whig:

On behalf of the Veterans Parade Committee, we would like to thank everyone who helped make this year's Veterans Parade a huge success. We would like to thank Quincy High School, Quincy University and Liberty Junior High School for bringing their bands, and the many military organizations, the many businesses and individuals who joined us Nov. 4. We would also like to thank those from Iowa who have provided their personal military vehicles for many years to transport the Purple Heart Unit and the 126th National Guard Unit who was sent to Vietnam.

Thank you to the radio and TV stations and The Herald-Whig for covering the parade and the weeks leading up to the parade. Thanks also to Mayor Kyle Moore and the City Council and the many businesses in downtown Quincy for allowing us to once again salute our veterans and those who are presently serving in the armed forces.

Again, we thank everyone.
