WAVE 3 News Editorial - November 3, 2015: Honoring Vets

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Louisville will honor veterans with a parade for the fifth straight year next Wednesday, November 11, after a half century hiatus. The parade will be at 11 a.m. on Main Street between 4th and 6th streets.

We encourage you to thank a veteran for his or her service over the next week and share photos of your favorite vet on our WAVE 3 News Facebook page, particularly local vets who have served in World War II. We will share them with parade organizers who are planning a special tribute to them during next year's parade.

WAVE Country certainly has been a huge patriotic region in America, with more than three quarters of million vets in Kentucky and Indiana alone. Less than 10% of Americans have served in the military and we owe all a debt of gratitude.
