(GDN) — Crowds line the streets of Downtown Goldsboro to pay tribute to our nation’s veterans.  Thursday’s Wayne County Veterans Day Parade saw roughly 100 entries take part in the procession that started at Center and Ash streets under clear skies and warming temps.  The Wayne County Veterans and Patriots Coalition puts the parade on annually, although they had to cancel last year’s event due to the pandemic.  Col. Tammy McElhaney, commander of the 4th Mission Support Group at Seymour Johnson, was scheduled to speak to the parade goers this year.  Following the parade, a remembrance service was held at the Wayne County Veterans Memorial at the corner of William and Walnut streets and was coordinated by the David Williams chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution.
