Veterans Day Celebration Begins
At the Boone County Courthouse, the celebration will go straight until Friday, nd so will the marchers. The cadets will march in one-hour shifts for 24-hours straight.
They started at 11:11 Thursday morning, signifying the day the World War I ended.
The celebration kicked off with the national anthem and the laying of the wreath.
One cadet said this year is special because it marks the 20th annual celebration.
"For our careers in the military and have some pride," Veterans Vigil Project Leader John Grunzinger said.
The parade will start at 10:40 a.m. Friday at Francis Quadrangle on the MU campus, go up Eighth Street and end at the courthouse.
