      Vets Day Centennial Salute to Service

      “Centennial Celebration” is the theme of this year’s Tarrant County Veterans Day Parade. Monday, Nov. 11, 2019 will mark 100 years of Armistice and Veterans Day marches through downtown Fort Worth.

      The year also marks the 100th anniversary of The American Legion, the American Legion Auxiliary and the Military Order of the World Wars. Veterans representing all three national organizations will serve as co-parade marshals for this year’s march down Main Street.

      The American Legion was founded on March 15, 1919, at the American Club near the Place de la Concorde in Paris, France, by members of the American Expeditionary Forces. Also founded in 1919, the American Legion Auxiliary is the world’s largest women's patriotic service organization.

      Texans have a long tradition of supporting The American Legion. It’s home to the first elected national commander – Henry Lindsley of Post 1 in Commerce, Texas was elected in 1919. Six other past national commanders hail from the Lone Star State.

      Cowtown’s annual Veterans Day parade began as an armistice procession in 1919 to honor those who had fought in World War I. In 1954, the name was changed to Veterans Day.

      The Tarrant County Veterans Council is busy planning for the centenary event. A new parade website has launched (www.FW2019VetsDay.org) and the parade committee is soliciting support from individuals and organizations across North Texas.
