One of the largest crowds in recent memory lined Main Street Franklin on Monday to pay tribute to the brave men and women who have served in our nation's military. Veterans as old as 98 made the trek up town hill to walk alongside other military heroes for Franklin's annual Veteran's Day Parade.
Veterans from each war from World War II all the way to soldiers who fought on the front lines in Afghanistan, were led down Main Street by local Boy Scout troops. Amidst resounding applause and spontaneous shouts of, “Thank You,” the community gathered in support of the sacrifices not only made by our nation's veterans, but also by their families.
