Veterans Day is a federal holiday held on the anniversary of the end of World War I to honor the those who served during that war. Although today, it serves to celebrate all veterans, both active and inactive, alive or deceased. Malden is home to many veterans, and because of this, the parade is a unique and special event that occurs in the city.
On Wednesday, Nov. 11, 2015, The City of Malden held their Annual Veterans Day Parade sponsored by the Malden American Legion Post #69. The parade featured Legion Officers, veterans, clergy and elected officials of the American Legion, as well as bands from the public schools, dance teams, boy scouts, and more.
