The Flagstaff “Armed Forces Day Parade” an official event of the Arizona Centennial, will begin at 10:00 a.m. in historic downtown Flagstaff.

One Response to Activities and Parade on Armed Forces Day

    I’m interested on attending the events during Armed Forces Day. I’m with the Fort Defiance (Tsehoo’tsooi’ Twin Warrior Veterans Society), Vice Commander and VFW Post 6789, Window Rock, Commander. In the years past we attended the parade and I would like to see if I can get some of the members interested in going this year. The only problem I will be running into it the funds. However, I would like a flyer, agenda, and some places to stay for one night. Thanks
