Grassroots organizers and The Mission Continues collaborated on a parade welcoming home troops from tours in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Swarms of people came out to downtown St. Louis to watch the parade. Parade participants saw signs thanking them for their service and welcoming them home.
As Patch has reported, worked to raise funds and awareness.
If you could speak to one of the servicemen or servicewomen returning to the United States, what would you say? Patch readers have been telling us all week.
