Celebrate the men and woman in America's armed forces at the 39th Annual Ross Hollywood Chapel Veterans Day Parade.  The parade starts at 9:45am and runs along Sandy Boulevard NE 40th to NE 48th. There will be a brief ceremony after the parade at 10:30 a.m.  This year the Grand Marshal of the parade is USO Northwest. The organization is working on a Welcome Center at the Portland airport for returning and deploying military.  The USO has not had a facility in Portland for 40 years.

After the parade, the public is invited to attend a free, WWII USO-style show at 12:30pm at the Hollywood Theater. Lunch will be provided for veterans and their families. All proceeds from the 1st annual Hollywood Veterans Mile run will benefit USO Northwest.
