BEND, OR -- Large crowds lined the streets of downtown Bend Monday morning for the 20th Annual Veterans Day Parade. A large contingent of motorcycle riders, many of them veterans, got things started as a Civil Air Patrol plane did a flyover. Veterans from World War 2, Korea, Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan marched in the parade and were cheered and thanked by many along the parade route. In turn veterans smiled, thanked the crowd and waved flags. Marching bands from area schools were represented in the parade along with service clubs from throughout the area.
