WHITESBORO- Local Veterans were not forgotten this morning in the Village of Whitesboro. Local families and children lined Main Street in Whitesboro, for their annual Veterans Day Parade.

The parade started at 9:30 a.m. and hosted numerous different organizations. The La Banda Rossa in their 112th Season marched with their instruments, followed by the Maynard Fire Department, the Oneida County Sheriff, and many local veterans.

The parade came to an end at the Whitestown American Legion Post 1113, where local veterans Wiley Jones Sr. and Jr. were both honored for their military service. Jones Sr. was honored for his service, which spanned from 1956-1960 on the USS Essex and Roosevelt in the U.S. Navy.

His son, Wiley Jones Jr., was honored for serving in the Gulf War and Dessert Storm. He was a member of the U.S. Army.

“I think Veterans Day means the same thing to every Veteran,” said Gary Eckerson, Past Commander of Whitestown Legion. “It's a way of honoring fellow veterans that we served with and that we were comrades with. We fought and died with each other, so it's a brotherhood that we all share”

The ceremony was concluded with a ceremonial flag folding, where both father and son were granted a flag from their local veterans.
