PROFILES IN COURAGE: KTAR reports on Phoenix Veterans Day Cold War Grand Marshal Diana Pike


We are honored that KTAR News has chosen to feature each of our 2016 Phoenix Veterans Day Parade Grand Marshals in their “Profiles in Courage” feature.

In this installment, Cold War Grand Marshal Diana Pike can’t fight back the tears as she not only recalls her service – but that of those who have fallen, including her son Christian. Listen to this moving story HERE.

We hope you will join us at the 20th Annual Phoenix Veterans Day Parade on November 11, 2016, to see Celebrity Grand Marshal Pete Hegseth and all eight Veteran Grand Marshals. This year’s parade theme is “Welcome Home Vietnam Heroes.” The parade typically boasts more than 100 entries, and this year will have a special float with nearly 20 Vietnam Veterans riding on it. The parade will also feature patriotic floats, high school marching bands, JROTC marching units, color guards, Veterans Service Organizations, animals, novelty units and much, much more.
