This will be the sixth year VFP 72 has stepped away from the traditional militaristic ceremonies and rhetoric to honor our fallen brothers and sisters in arms.
As General Ulysses S. Grant, eighteenth President of the United States said, "The one thing I never want to see again is a military parade".
The public is welcome, please pass this along.
