At 11:00 a.m., planes flew over the demonstration in the Missing Man Formation.  The flyover honors fallen service members, and is often demonstrated at funerals and memorial events.

More than 150 men and women took the Oath of Enlistment Friday morning at Dallas City Hall.  Those men and women will enter all branches of service.  Army Chief of Staff General Mark A. Milley led the recruits in the oath and encouraged past and current service members to rededicate themselves to the cause of freedom.

The parade honors all veterans, but this year focuses on veterans who served in Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm.
