The Annual Veterans Day of Honor and Parade takes place every year on the Saturday before Veterans Day in downtown Milwaukee. The Parade steps off at 11:00 and ends at the War Memorial. The parade boasts over 1000 veterans and military marching in the parade from all over southeastern Wisconsin as well as floats, marching bands, baton twirlers, and more. The parade would not be complete without a few jeeps and tanks as well.

In addition to the parade, the Day of Honor includes military displays at the War Memorial and a Memorial Service at the Reflecting Pool to honor those we have lost in service to our country.
