This year's Heroes Homecoming II will feature a series of touching ceremonies demonstrating that there is no stronger bond than the love between a father and son, a husband and wife, a soldier and his country. Nearly 1.5 million US soldiers left behind those they love to stand for their country in the Iraq War, and America's Hometown is proud to be hosting Heroes Homecoming II as a way to recognize their service and sacrifice.

The Veteran's Day Parade on Nov. 10 will be available live on WRAL-TV and WRAL.com.
