Five area veterans – one from each branch of the military, and representing various eras – will take to the streets of Prescott as grand marshals.

The opening ceremony will include the Pledge of Allegiance led by Congressman Paul Gosar, and remarks by Prescott Mayor Harry Oberg; James Johnson of the VA Medical Center; and Frank Ayers of Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. Ana Nava will perform the national anthem, and Yavapai County Supervisor Jack Smith will serve as master of ceremonies.

After starting at 11 a.m., the parade will pause at 11:11 a.m. for the reading of the Armistice Day Proclamation that commemorated the end of World War I.
