The following news release is sent on behalf of the Davidson County Veterans Coordinating Council:
NASHVILLE VETERANS DAY PARADE
WILL BE ON SATURDAY THIS YEAR
Nashville’s 28th Regional City Veterans Day Parade will step off at 11:00 AM, sharp, behind the 129th Army Band on Saturday, November 11, 2006. Route of March is East on Broadway from the I-40/65 bridge (South Loop) to 3rd Avenue, with a flyover of military aircraft scheduled.
Co-Grand Marshals will be Major General William R. Cotney, Assistant
Adjutant General, Air, Tennessee National Guard, and singer/songwriter/actor/
Army veteran Jerry Reed (The Guitar Man/Smokey and the Bandit).
Veterans from some 15 Veterans Service Organizations, Military, Motorcycle Clubs, ROTC, ROTC units, Scouts, Sea Cadets, Shriners, Young Marines, high school bands, re-enactors, and public officials will be among the entries.
Parade Chairman Bob Robison says,“Veterans are invited to march, and the public is invited to view the parade along Broadway.”
As usual, the Assembly Area for the parade will be on Broadway between 14th Avenue and extending on West End to 18th Avenue. Participants entering the Assembly Area from I-40/I-65 (South Loop) are asked to go west on Church Street to 18th Avenue, left (South) on 18th to West End, left (East) on West End into the rear of the Assembly area.
Those entering from I-440 should come east on West End directly into the rear of the Assembly Area. Entering the Assembly Area from the rear will permit the uniformed National Guard Parade Marshals to direct participants to their assigned positions, and greatly reduce the confusion of everyone trying to use the Broadway Exit and blocking up the front of the Assembly Area.
