Victoria (KAVU) After 6 years in the Marines and 2 deployments to Iran, Nick Riley, can finally call himself a Veteran and on Veteran’s Day he still remembers his brothers and sisters at war.

 

“Just to show my brothers and sisters that I still support them even as a Veteran we still support each other,” Riley said.

 

Supporting our Veterans’ in the Veteran’s Day Parade and those who are still serving is very important to Riley.

 

“I think it’s always important to show thanks and everybody's love for these men and women that have given everything for our country,” Riley said.

 

Those who didn't have family Veterans in the parade, like Christine Peach, still came to honor and remember their Veterans.

 

“My dad is living in Richardson and my Grandpa served in WWII with the Navy; he has passed away unfortunately,” Peach said.

 

Support from the community was all around; hundreds of our residents here in Victoria County pack Main Street, to show honor and support for our Veterans.

 

“It’s very uplifting to see the community show their support and then all the school and everybody that come out just to show their support,” Riley said.
