Veterans Day might not be for another two days, but it didn't stop folks from saying thank you to our servicemen and women Saturday.

It was a sea of red, white, and blue and lots of patriotism in downtown Roanoke for the Virginia Veterans Parade.

Military and marching units from across the state and several marching bands joined veterans on the parade route.

This is one of the largest Veterans Day events in the state.
