Attendees of the Rose Festival Veterans’ Memorial Day Parade at Tom McCall Waterfront Park in downtown Portland, Ore., watch as two F-15 Eagle jets from the Oregon Air National Guard’s 142nd Fighter Wing conduct a flyover at the festivities.

The annual event, which kicks off the Rose Festival in Portland, featured Oregon’s Citizen-Soldiers and Citizen-Airmen representing the units of the Oregon Army and Air National Guard, and honored veterans of all military services.

The event included members of the Royal Rosarians, Patriot Guard Riders, Portland Fire Department, U.S. Coast Guard, Rose Festival volunteers, and military equipment from the Oregon Military Museum.
