    "We are honored to have veterans and distinguished guests join us in Dallas to pay tribute to America's heroes, especially those that served in World War II," said Philip A. "Pat" Teipel, 2019 Dallas Veterans Day Parade Chairman. "It's with great respect that we recognize them and remember the service men and women who gave the ultimate sacrifice. This generation fought one of the great battles of our time and laid the foundation for ultimate victory over Nazi Germany."
