The Mesquite Color Guard lead the Veteran’s Day Parade to honor those who fought to defend our country, the American symbol for success, righteousness and sovereignty and all the people who stand for it in their pursuit of life, liberty and happiness. Before the parade began the United States Air Force treated the crowd to a flyover of two of their fighter jets out of Nellis Air Force Base.
Bringing up the rear of the parade were the men and women who protect and serve Mesquite on a more local level, the Mesquite Police and Fire Departments. MPD made quite a show of their tactical vehicle displaying to the crowd all the ‘bells and sirens’ it was equipped with.
In the middle of the previous were 40 additional entries, human, canine and equine, which included several different groups of veterans, City Council members and a large number of those who just wanted to thank and honor them. The Salt Lake City Shriners with their mini bikes, go cart and clowns were especially entertaining to the crowd.
