CHICAGO WELCOMES HOME
THE HEROES PARADE
DECEMBER 15, 2012
12:00 PM
COLUMBUS DRIVE
BETWEEN BALBO AND MONROE

After every war in modern U.S. history, we as a nation have honored our Veterans with parades, and now that the Iraq War has concluded, we want to recognize and honor this current group of Veterans in the same manner. Since the Iraq War ended in December, there has been a nation-wide movement of civilians organizing parades in cities like St. Louis, Richmond, and Minneapolis to welcome home and say thank you to Iraq Veterans, and we believe that Chicago should be the next city to hold such a parade. 

While this parade will be dedicated to welcoming home Veterans who served during Post-9/11 wars, we would like to invite our entire military community to participate and be honored.

To mark the one year anniversary of the end of the Iraq War, the parade will be held on Saturday, December 15th.
