Boise Veterans Day Parade

Boise Veterans Day Parade
November 2, 10 AM

This year's parade theme is "Letters from Home”. Receiving letters from a loved one has an impact not only on our armed forces, but their families and communities.  With the imminence of danger and the uncertainty of war, families are encouraged to write about the most basic daily routines, family news and local gossip.

Mail is still indispensable and plays a significant role in maintaining morale on the battlefront giving the troops the strength to carry on.
