Thirteen Perch Base Members and wives participated in the 1st Annual Patriot Day Parade in Historic Downtown Williams, AZ, on Saturday, September 12, 2020. The parade theme was "WE ARE STRONG."
Williams honored our distinguished men & women in uniform, the American veteran & their families, law enforcement, fire & first responders, and our doctors, nurses & frontline workers.
Both parade participants and the audience turned out in large numbers.

The veteran working war dogs in this parade entry not only help the veterans with PTSD, but the veterans help the dogs. One of the dogs in this parade is a PURPLE HEART recipient healing from bullet wounds and shrapnel!
