Warsaw, North Carolina saw local Marines marching in the 97th Annual Veterans Day Parade; a new honorable experience for most.

In 2016, the parade was made the official North Carolina Veterans Day Parade, but it has been a Warsaw tradition since 1921. An event that takes place on the first Saturday of each November. For Marines with the 1st Battalion, 10 Marine Regiment, 2nd Marine Division and Combat Logistics Battalion 8, it wasn't just a fun new way to honor our nation's veterans, but a way to meet and see all of their own local supporters.

"It was a very humbling experience," 2nd Lt. Hunton Caroll, a combat engineer platoon commander with CLB-8 told Marine Public Affairs. "The purpose of having Marines march in this parade was to show respect for the veterans who have served in our nation's armed forces and to honor the town's tradition of having an annual parade."
