DUBLIN, Ga. — Red, white, and blue filled the streets of downtown Dublin on Saturday.

For the third Annual Veterans Day Parade, floats, horses, and generations of veterans and military personnel marched through the streets — honoring the men and women who have made many sacrifices for our freedom. 

Ashley Thompson helped plan the event with Georgia Military College.

"We hope to get bigger and better each year so we can show the veterans, past and present, our honor an appreciation to them," Thompson said.

The parade also celebrated the 100th year of the American Legion.
