More about Welcome Home 2011
Welcome Home 2011 commemorates the 25th anniversary of the 1986 Vietnam Veterans Welcome Home Parade. That event drew over 200,000 veterans and their families who proudly marched down the streets of Chicago before a crowd of over 300,000 applauding spectators. It was the largest parade of its kind in the history of the United States.
The Welcome Home 2011 anniversary weekend celebration, which was officially launched this past Veteran’s Day, will feature a variety of activities for veterans, retired and active serviceman, friends, family and fellow Americans. These activities include a kick-off rally at Navy Pier on Saturday morning encompassing an opening ceremony and followed by entertainment from Jackie Marx and Britt Small. There will also be vendor and information booths and veteran reunions. The rally will be followed by a “Pass on the Torch” ceremony honoring the veterans.
