If you know anyone who cannot make it to the parade, but still want to support they can do so through our Brown Ribbon Campaign. For a donation of $5, you will receive a brown ribbon pin in support of the Congressional Gold Medal for WWII Veteranos. The funds will go towards payment for medals, shipping of the medals, and additional costs.  http://www.vetsequitycenter.org/support/cgm/
