christmas parade canceled

The Town of Middletown is searching for female veterans and active duty military members to be recognized during their upcoming 4th of July parade.

Virginia is the home of 109,000 women veterans, the largest per capita of any state.

The Commonwealth was also one of the first states to acknowledge the unique challenges and opportunities faced by women veterans as they transition to civilian life by being one of the first to create a Women Veterans Program.

If you are interested in being part of their Military Appreciation Float, contact Leandra Ganci at Leandra@RidgesideK9.com
