Mr. Altman served with the Army’s Second Division in Korea and was captured in March 1951.
“We’re hoping for a large turn out so please encourage all veterans to participate in the parade” said American Legion Commander Rodney Ward. “We’re also asking for their families and friends to line up on Front Street and salute our veterans on this special occasion when our country remembers them and their sacrifices.” To help create some rivalry and friendly competition between the high school bands and ROTC units, a panel of judges will award trophies to the band and ROTC unit that perform the best.
