Thank you for signing up for the 51st Auburn Veterans Day Parade & Observance Festivities! 

5 November


Note from our Wing Commander, Col James P. Furlong

The Auburn Veterans Day Parade will be live-streamed on KOMO's website. See commercial here. You are reminded:

        1)            Your signed CAPF 31 is your Squadron Commander's acknowledgement that they've approved your attendance and uniform
        2)            Anyone not wearing the uniform properly at this high visibility event will be respectfully excluded from participation
        3)            This applies to every member at any level regardless of membership, grade, or rank

Please ensure your uniform adheres to CAPM 39-1 and the applicable WAWG S39-1. Tip: Peer inspections are much more effective than a personal review! This manual has changed over the years. Don’t be caught by surprise! Thank you for your support!


Sign Up Here 

Check-In

To participate in the activity, you must be checked in! Your uniform will be inspected upon check-in, and members out of compliance with CAPM 39-1 will be assisted with corrections to the best of our ability, or if necessary turned away. This is a televised event, and represents CAP.
