As we gather together this Thursday and celebrate all our wonderfully abundant and diverse country, tune in at 4:00 PM on Access Sacramento cable channel 18 to appreciate and remember our nation’s veterans. The City of Sacramento Veteran’s Day Parade on Capitol Mall was videotaped November 11 in all its glory.

Leading off the celebration was Chuck Yeager, famous test pilot and the aviator who first broke the sound barrier. In addition to marching bands, classic cars, and local dignitaries including Congresswoman Doris Matsui, the parade featured several members of the famous Tuskeegee Airman.

After the parade, many of our local leaders shared their personal thoughts on this auspicious day and our Hometown-TV cameras documented it all. After the turkey, the football game, and before the “nap”, tune in and celebrate our brave men and women veterans on Access Sacramento Channel 18. Here’s the complete cablecast schedule:
