Proud Americans Line the Streets of Brooksville for Annual Veterans Day Parade – VIDEO

BROOKSVILLE – Dozens lines the streets of downtown Brooksville this morning for the annual Veterans Day Parade.

Military Veterans, local dignitaries, dancers and even a very special performance by Central High School’s Navy JROTC program, that was the highlight of the parade.

Maj. Christopher Nolf, Commanding Officer of the NJROTC tells RNRF that to him, Veterans Day is meant to, “Pay tribute and give honor to those who are serving and to say thank you to those who have led the way, so that we can continue the freedoms that we have here in the United States.”

Veterans Day began during World War I and was originally referred to as Armistice Day, after the Treaty of Versailles was signed on June 28th, 1919,  bringing the war to an end.Later that year, President Woodrow Wilson officially proclaimed November 11th, 1919 As Armistice Day because the fighting ended on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month.

The Veterans Day that we celebrate today wasn’t enacted until October 25th, 1971, after President Gerald R. Ford signed the proclamation but after some several years of debate, the officials day of observance was changed back to November 11th, in 1978.
