JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - The Jonesboro community honored local veterans Saturday morning with the annual Veterans Day Parade.
Several businesses took part and had floats driving down Main Street.
Billy Cribbs with the Jonesboro chapter of the Disabled American Veterans said there was more community participation this year than ever before.
Cribbs said it's all for one reason: the veterans.
"That's the main thing, shake hands with all our veterans, tell them how much we appreciate what they've done," he said. "If it wasn't for them we wouldn't have a free country today."
Cribbs said they make sure to honor the prisoners of war and those missing in action every year.
