Saturday’s cool and windy weather didn’t stop people from attending the 101st Veterans Day Parade and Memorial Service in Warsaw. Thousands of people lined the parade route to watch and honor our veterans. The day’s events got underway early Saturday morning with a Memorial Service hosted by Warsaw VFW Post 9810 Commander Dwight Carlton as he welcomed the public. This year’s guest speaker was Victor Letourneaut, past North Carolina Department Commander, followed by the placing of the Wreath by Debbie Lucas, Auxiliary  President of Post 9810. The service came to an end with the playing of Taps by Rudolph Becton. The parade got underway at 11 AM with a flyover of three aircraft from the Forestry Service. Due to the high winds the parachute team was unable to perform their jump. The parade lasted about an hour and a half.
