KBIA's Brandon Kiley reports from the 2014 Memorial Day parade in Columbia, Mo.
The Salute to Veterans Memorial Day Parade continued its 26-year tradition with spectators coming together to watch the parade in downtown Columbia. The Salute to Veterans Corporation says the parade is specifically put on to honor and remember those who served and those currently serving in the armed forces, guard, reserves and our allies.
On this Memorial Day, veterans, family members, and supporters gathered at the five veterans’ cemeteries in Missouri. At the Jacksonville Cemetery near Moberly, hundreds showed up to pay respects to Missouri’s fallen soldiers.
