The Dallas Veterans Day Parade begins near City Hall in Downtown Dallas Friday morning.

Veterans from all branches of the military and all eras of service attended and shared their stories with residents who were eager to thank them.

Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush, who served in the U.S. Navy Reserve, addressed the crowd for the kickoff of the Dallas Veterans Day Parade Friday.

Among the festivities, several service members commented that their favorite part of the yearly tradition was to see young, new recruits to the military sworn in before the large crowd.

Also in attendance this year was Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush, who served as keynote speaker.
