Hundreds of spectators waving small U.S. flags lined the streets along the Veterans Day
parade route Monday morning. A flyover performed by F-16s from the 138th Fighter Wing, an Oklahoma Air National Guard unit in Tulsa, also thrilled spectators. Five
veterans served as the parade’s grand marshals. Kicking
off the parade was
the Naval Reserve
seven-story American flag carried by 100
volunteers. The flag is 50 feet by 76 feet, weighs 110 pounds and was sponsored by the Midwest City Chapter of Disabled American Veterans.
