JONESBORO, AR - Members of the Craighead County Veterans Monument Foundation this morning will begin a 24-hour vigil leading up to local Veteran's Day ceremonies tomorrow in downtown Jonesboro.

"We will begin 24 hours of recognition activities starting at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, November 10th, concluding with a big parade and ceremonies at the monument on Thursday," said Jerry Bowen of the Military Officers Association.  "Everyone is invited to visit the monument and reflect on the freedom for which veterans have paid and continue to pay such a high price," he added.

The Veteran's Day Parade will begin at 10 a.m. tomorrow.  Co-grand marshals include outgoing Jonesboro Mayor Hubert Brodell, an Army veteran who served in Korea, and K8 News Anchor Diana Davis.  K8 News Team members Andrea Morrow, Chris Castleman and Lauren Payne will also participate in the parade.  A ceremony on the courthouse square will immediately follow the parade.
