OGDEN -- The Top of Utah's Veterans Day parade will kick off at 11 a.m. today with a flyover from Hill Air Force Base.
Parade units will form up between 18th and 20th streets on Washington Boulevard. At 11:11 a.m., more than 65 parade units will march south to 23rd Street, then west to Lindquist Field.
The parade includes several local marching bands, antique and modern military vehicles, and a large number of military marching and parade units.
Specially featured in this year's parade are all living veterans of the Korean War, who are being honored as this year's parade grand marshals. Dennis Howland, one of the organizers of the parade, said nearly 200 veterans of that war are expected to attend, although he stressed that veterans of all wars as well as veterans of peacetime service are welcome to attend and take part.
A patriotic assembly will be held at Lindquist Field following the parade. Lt. Gov. Greg Bell and several other political leaders will speak. Several other events are planned, including a demonstration by Hill Air Force Base's team of dogs trained to discover explosives.
