— The annual Fayetteville Veterans Day parade rolled through downtown Saturday morning.

The 2015 edition honored female veterans, and Major General Marcia M. Anderson and Command Sergeant Major Yolanda M. Tate served as grand marshals.

The show kicked off with a flyover of a C-130 aircraft from the 440th Airlift Wing based at Pope Field on Fort Bragg. The parade had more than 100 participants, including active duty military, numerous veterans’ organizations, military equipment, and ROTC units and marching bands from local high schools and universities.

The parade began on Hay Street at the Airborne Special Operations Museum and ended at Liberty Point on Person Street.
