Honoring America's veterans. Thousands of Tulsans lined the streets of downtown for the annual Veteran's Day parade.

Several marching bands from across Green Country proudly played in the annual parade. Six World War II fighter planes also flew overhead to salute soldiers.

Veterans walked the route in uniform as did some future soldiers in Junior ROTC.

One veteran says even after all this time, being a part of the event makes him proud. Perry Partney: "This just re-enforces the fact that we're well supported in our military."

The News on 6 would also like to thank some of our veterans for their military service, Jim Giles, Dick Faurot and Rick Wells.
