Members of South Sound Composite Squadron joined with units from Lewis County to Overlake and as far as Spokane to join Green River Squadron at Auburn's 50th Veteran's Day Parade. Despite the cold and rain, Washington Wing made a strong showing with nearly 50 Cadets and Senior Members marched in the largest Veteran's Day Parade West of the Mississippi River. Other members manned the information & recruiting booth, talking to people about our program. After the parade, cadets accepted the 22 push-up Challenge from the booth next to us - National Alliance to End Veteran Suicide - to help bring awareness to the sad fact that 22 veterans commit suicide each day.

The South Sound contingent included Capt Scott Dean, 1st Lt J.Lynn Dean, 2d Lt Victoria Wonser, SM Shanne Montague, and SM Tarcy Hulse along with C/SrA Wonser, C/A1C Yap, C/Amn Krug, Cadet D. Miller, Cadet Hulse, Cadet Stachowicz, and Cadet West.
