KENAI - Past and present military members will march or ride in a parade in their honor in Soldotna.
The veterans parade is scheduled to start at 11 a.m. Saturday.
One of the organizers, Kenai Lancaster, says it's an opportunity to thank veterans "for what they've done, why we're free and the privileges we have in America."
This is the second year for the parade. Last year, 28 groups participated and Lancaster is hoping for more this year.
The parade coincides with Flag Day, which is celebrated Sunday.
