Gold Star Family Members from any war.

As we approach Memorial Day, you are invited to an evening of patriotism to honor those who have served our nation and to remember those who have fallen, while lifting up their families, our Gold Star neighbors.

Bring your children and grandchildren to teach them the importance of Memorial Day.

This Patriotic Parade & Concert will begin in downtown Omaha at 12th & Jackson and end at The Durham Museum for a Concert. Free hotdogs by HyVee!

This will be a wonderful way to begin the Memorial Day Weekend as we honor our military and remember our Gold Star Families who lost their loved ones. Plan to bring your children and grandchildren.

The Ft Riley Commanding General's Mounted Color Guard will be there, along with an 1871 Army Escort Wagon, pulled by two Molly Mules, which are Percheron draft horse crosses. The wagon is an original restored wagon that was used to bring rations and ammunition to resupply cavalry troopers on the battlefield in the western frontier.

The soldiers of the Mounted Color guard are Fort Riley Soldiers on a two-year assignment.

Their mission is unique because Fort Riley was the home of the US Army Cavalry School. The Mounted Color Guard is one of only seven active equestrian units in the Army. They have participated in the Inaugural Parades for the last three Presidents and the Normandy D-Day Invasion Anniversary in France, among many other events.

We invite Gold Star Family members, veterans and veterans' groups, horses, classic cars, military vehicles, and more to participate. More details at:
