MILWAUKEE -- Twenty-two Airmen from the 128th Air Refueling Wing joined locally-stationed service members and several veterans' groups from throughout Southeastern Wisconsin during a Veteran's Day parade on Saturday, November 7. 

The parade took place in downtown Milwaukee, starting at 11 a.m. at the intersection of Fourth Street and Kilbourn Avenue, and ending at the War Memorial on the lakeshore. 

Following the parade, Wisconsin service members joined other veterans for a luncheon at the War Memorial. 

"The public support was outstanding," said Lt. Col. Winston Hainsworth, the 128 ARW comptroller. "What I found interesting was the public thanking us, and us thanking them for supporting us today."
