On Nov. 6, military associations will parade through Main Plaza starting at 8:30 a.m. The parade will march to Chase Bank, then to the Comal River crossing the East San Antonio bridge then heading towards Prince Solms Park.
Staging begins at 7:30 a.m. to 8:15 a.m. at St. Peter & Paul Catholic Church on 386 North Castell Avenue. There will be breakfast for participants by local restaurants.
Gen. Robert T. Clark, who served in the Gulf War and Vietnam War, will guest speak.
Accompanying him will be the Alamo Eagles 101st Airborne Association, the 173rd Brigade Silver Wings Airborne Association, the Purple Heart Association and the Commemorative Air Force of San Marcos.
The Central Texas Wing of the Commemorative Air Force around 10 a.m. will fly over its T-6 plane, which is properly called the AT-6 Texan, which stands for “Advanced Training” as the AT-6 was used in World War II training for the U.S. and allies.
At the end, Deacon Rusty Brandt will deliver a final prayer and Albert Morales will play “Taps,” followed by speeches from local and state representatives.
Participants can be veterans or active military and dress in their military attire if they wish.
Those in the parade can bring a classic or military vehicle, decorated float or motorcycle group.
Participants can also be walkers in the parade, and Lopez hopes veteran-run businesses will also join.
