“Anyone who is willing to step up, whether they’re 18 or 30, and sign the dotted line and say, ‘I’m going to serve for that purpose,’ those to me are my heroes,” veteran David Fennell said. “Broncos, Nuggets; they’re great, I’m a fan, but my heroes are here.”
The parade wound its way through the streets of downtown Denver.
The actual Veterans Day is Monday.
