WAYNEDALE, Ind. (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - Hundreds of people lined the streets of Waynedale Monday morning to honor local Veterans.

The parade is annual tradition in Waynedale.

It is also a time for community members to show their support for soldiers on active duty and fallen troops.

The parade began at the Waynedale United Methodist Church.

Young and old, cheered in support of local police, firefighters and Veterans.

The parade traveled north on Old Trail Road and ended at the Prairie Grove Cemetery.

At that point, a special military presentation took place to honor fallen soldiers.

Meanwhile, President Obama honored those who have fallen with the traditional laying of the wreath at the Tomb of the Unknowns.

The Tomb of the Unknowns is also serving as the site of a National Moment of Silence ceremony held at 2:55 pm, and a memorial service by the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War at 5 pm.
