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

Members have a few opportunities to participate!

  • March in the parade with us! 
    Cadets and Senior Members ... we want you to march in the parade! We have a Color Guard lined up, but we also want EVERY squadron to send a member with their squadron flag for our massed Color Guard. If you do not have a squadron flag, members may carry a unit banner. We look forward to the opportunity to have all of the squadrons represented! 

  • Work as staff at our information/recruitment booth!
    This is a great way to mingle with members of the community and talk to them about the great work we do!
Check out the other great activities around Auburn that day. (Note: Do not complete any signup forms on the City's page. Your signup on the Washington Wing page is sufficient).

** If you're interested in attending but billeting (lodging) would be prohibitive, please contact us so we can try to make arrangements with a local squadron! **
