The 2013 Veterans Day Parade will begin at 11 a.m. Monday and will travel through downtown Goldsboro.
Leading the event to honor those who are serving and those who have served will be parade grand marshal Hugh Howard, a World War II veteran and former prisoner of war.
Howard, 89, was just two days shy of his 22nd birthday when the B-17 on which he was a gunner was shot down over Germany in 1944. He spent seven months in a POW camp, before being liberated by U.S. forces on April 29, 1945.
A native of Davie County, Howard served in World War II and the Korean Conflict, retiring after 30 years in the Air Force.
