Memorial Day and Veterans Day are annual federal holidays used to commemorate the lives of soldiers and others who have served in the armed forces. Memorial Day commemorates those men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces, while Veterans Day honors everyone who has served in the United States Armed Forces, not only those who have passed.
But Canyon Lakers will take any opportunity to honor its veterans; hence the Veterans Brigade at the Fiesta Day Parade. Veterans were invited to decorate a golf cart and ride in the parade, putting up a sign to indicate their name and branch of service. Here are a few of those who participated.
