Veterans Say Thanks for ZDD™ Recognition
Jackson veterans took time out of their monthly meeting to thank several in the city for remembering their service in this year’s Zippity Doo Dah® parade.
“It’s the most unbelievable thing I’ve ever seen in my life. The tears flowed. And we thought it was over when we made the turn to come up Old Canton Road and, all of a sudden, the same number of people cheering, screaming ‘Welcome Home,’ screaming their heads off,” said Vietnam Veteran Jim Wiley.
Governor Phil Bryant and two former U.S. Presidents sent letters to the Jackson-based veterans organization as well, thanking them for their service.
