With a theme of “United We Stand, Veterans and the Community Building a better Future Together”, Joplin honored those in the armed forces with a parade this morning. Patriotic floats traveled down main street from 20th Street to 2nd Street.

KOAM and FOX 14’s own 4-state hero float was part of the parade proudly saluting all branches with Lisa Olliges and Mike Olmstead representing.

About a 1,000 people lined the downtown district to honor our armed forces.
