FORT SILL, Okla. (KSWO) - Fort Sill’s Armed Forces Day Parade will take place on Saturday, May 20.

7News spoke with Virginia Aid, the community relations liaison for Fort Sill, about the list of activities that will be available for the community.

Before the parade begins, there will be a swearing-in of future US Army Soldiers at 9:30 a.m. by Brigadier General Shane Morgan. After will be the parade, featuring almost 600 soldiers, their weapon systems, and a Salute Howitzer, which will fire as each Brigade Marches past. Ear protection will be provided at the event.

Following the parade, Fort Sill officials will be set up in Elmer Thomas Park with vehicles the community will be able to get inside and inspect. It’s also the perfect opportunity to strike up a conversation with soldiers on-site if you’re interested in learning more about the career.
