Veterans now battling apathy

The Albany area has been the site of a military base from every major branch of the service. There is still a Marine base that has been here since 1953. If you go to other cities with a base nearby, Veterans Day parades and events are a big thing. They even have a parade in Panama City, offer discounts during the weekend, not only through Applebees and Golden Corral, but other local establishments that offer meals and free car washes.
