(WABI) – The project started out with the World War II vets, and then Korean war veterans. The latest to get their walking sticks are the Vietnam vets.
The number of veterans from that era surprised Cole. So he had to order more of the walking sticks.
Now, hundreds are ready to be handed out.
Those who get the sticks are asked to take part in the 4th of July parade through Bangor and Brewer.
800 sticks are being handed out to the Vietnam war veterans, so Cole expects this year’s parade to have the largest number of veterans ever.
