Veterans, essential workers honored with social distancing parade

“Our veterans need to know that even though we can’t be up there volunteering and loving on them and appreciating them... we're thinking about them," said one of the parade participants.

A group of motorists did their best to honor veterans and essential workers by organizing a patriotic parade of nearly 150 vehicles on Monday. 

The group, called Rolling Forward for Heroes, drove 90 motorcycles and 40 cars and trucks in a procession around Carl Brashear’s Radcliff Veterans Center, waving flags and holding posters supporting both those who have served and the workers on the front lines of the COVID 19 pandemic. 

“Our veterans need to know that even though we can’t be up there volunteering and loving on them and appreciating them, they need to know that we’re thinking about them,” parade participant Kelli Oakley said to Wave 3 News.

This is the second drive-by parade organized by the group – the first took place in Wilmore, Kentucky at its veterans center.
