Several hundred veterans participated in the EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2019 veteran parade on Friday afternoon prior to the airshow. Veterans from conflicts ranging from World War II to the present, including all who served stateside and in Cold War stations, were walking or riding in golf carts and various military vehicles to the delight of the crowd. Strangers became friends the moment they met in the parade and on the crowd line, with a continuous round of applause ringing throughout the parade route. This year's Grand Marshall was none other than the legendary Colonel Bud Anderson.
The Aero Experience appreciates our veterans, and we present this look at the EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2019 veterans parade with gratitude and thankfulness to those whose served and their families.
