ST. LOUIS (KMOX)-As the nation’s first parade to honor those who have served in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan draws closer, the call is going out again for veterans to sign up so they can be among the honored.

Parade organizer Tom Applebaum tells KMOX’s Charlie Brennan that if you served, they want you to take part, “We’re getting vets coming in, post-9/11 vets, their families can participate in the parade, either ride on a float or walk. If a vet is out there and wants to participate go to our website, and sign up.”

Applebaum says even if you dont’ sign up, and just show up, they’ll find a place for you, but they prefer veterans register ahead of time.

The parade begins at noon Saturday at Kiener Plaza and ends at Union Station, where a resource village will be set up to help veterans connect with service organizations.

    The City did not initiate this. Could it use this event to recommit to Soldiers
    Memorial Plaza which has been disgracefully neglected and abused,
    and actually open it and promote it. Make our civic center, civic again.
