Tim Holbert, executive director of the American Veterans Center, discussed the National Memorial Day Parade in D.C. with Breitbart News Daily SiriusXM host Stephen K. Bannon.
Said Holbert, “The parade is really a moving timeline of American history. We have re-enactors from the American Revolution, the Civil War, all the way up to Veterans of World War II to more than 1,000 active duty personnel in the parade.” He added, “It’s all designed to call attention to the true meaning of Memorial Day, which is, obviously, honoring our fallen heroes”:
On Monday, May 30, 2016, the National Memorial Day Parade will commence at the corner of Constitution Avenue and 7th Streets, NW. It will proceed west down Constitution, past the White House, ending at 17th Street. Participants will pass by the nation’s monuments, museums, and hundreds of thousands of spectators waving their flags and cheering for our country’s heroes – the men and women who wear the uniform of our armed forces.
From the American Revolution up to present day conflicts, the Parade will commemorate the American spirit and the sacrifices of those Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines and Coast Guardsmen who serve so we can live in the Land of the Free. The parade will include floats, high school marching bands, veterans, service members, local and national celebrities, service organizations and clubs, and much more!
