The City of Quincy once again held its annual Veteran's Day Parade through downtown before ending at the Doughboy Statue at the Adams Academy where World War II Pilot Russell Erikson, a 94-year-old Quincy native, addressed the crowd. Erikson served in the U.S. Army's 8th Air Force division in Europe and piloted a B-24 Liberator Bomber, flying 33 combat missions over Germany and Europe.

He also spoke of all our veterans -- from the Korean War, Vietnam War, and the Gulf War -- and today's ongoing fighting in the mid-East.
