On Saturday, April 26, North Carolinians will have an opportunity to show why their state is the Nation’s Most Military Friendly State as a Salute to Our Troops kicks off with a parade in downtown Raleigh. It will be the largest military parade in the history of the state.
Personnel from every branch of the military and from bases across North Carolina will gather for the parade which begins at 10 a.m. with a flyover by F-15E Strike Eagle jet aircraft from Seymour Johnson Air Force Base.
Detailed information on the parade and the day’s events is available at the event Web site http://www.saluteournctroops.org/events.html
