    Tarrant County held its Veterans Day Parade on Saturday to honor our military veterans.

    The parade is put on by the Tarrant County Veterans Council in association with the Fort Worth World War I Centennial Commission.

    This year's theme was "The War to End All Wars."

    The parade started near Panther Island Pavilion and made its way through the streets of downtown.

    Some Leavenworth County, Kansas, officials are calling for Commissioner Louis Klemp's resignation after he insulted a black woman who had just presented a land-use study to the commission. "I don't want you to think I am picking on you because we are part of the master race. You have a gap in your teeth. We are part of the master race, don't you forget that," Klemp said.

    "It's nice to see that a lot of people appreciate what the veterans have done and the sacrifices that we've made," said Air Force veteran Doc Lambert.

    Parade-goers lined the streets to watch decorated floated and cars pass by.

    Many veterans participated in the parade, including Steve Williams, a U.S. Navy veteran.

    "It's a tough life... you're separated from your family and everything, but we have some dedicated people who are doing what they believe in," Williams said.

    The Grand Marshal of this year's parade was Jim Hodgson, a Texas WWI Centennial Commemoration Director.
