Anna Munoz: Show up for veterans

November 13, 2013 

The picture on page 2A in the Nov. 11 N&O of the residents of Bristol, England, as they line the streets to honor members of the armed forces and veterans marching during their Remembrance Day parade, was a sad commentary that so few of our residents, who lead their normal lives and enjoy the gift of freedom and security our military has guarded for us over the years, have shown up for our veterans parade in Raleigh.

If a popular celebrity participated, I bet the streets would be lined with adoring fans.
