The American Legion, Department of Indiana invites you and your fellow Legion Family members to join us in marching proudly behind our flag and colors provided by the Bloomfield Memorial Post 196 Honor Guard at the 2016 Veterans Day Parade in Indianapolis.
Participation is highly encouraged! Let’s get out there and show Indiana that we march for our veterans. Please find the attached parade route map, rules and guidelines for the day’s event.
The American Legion, Department of Indiana is in Section 2 of the Parade, which means our marshaling area is located on the intersection of North Street and Fort Wayne Street, just East of Pennsylvania, where we will meet at 10:45 a.m. Please read over all the attached information carefully and make sure you understand where your marshal area is located.
Parking will be located at The American Legion Parking Lot at the southeast intersection of Pennsylvania and St. Claire. For those that require parking passes, please respond to this email and request them. These passes are limited so be sure to carpool or organize a chauffeur. Additionally, there are passes for those that wish to drop off elderly and/or disabled participants directly in the marshaling area before parking. Again, these are available upon request.
Department Assistant Adjutant Will Henry will be on ground organizing our Hoosier Legion Family. The Indiana National Guard and Reserves will also be assisting as parade marshals, so please listen to them and follow their instructions towards a safe and fun parade.
Order of march will be Legion, Auxiliary, Sons, Riders. Don your Legion caps, pins, t-shirts, jackets and coats. Please spread the word and let’s maximize our participation.
