LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- Hundreds packed downtown Louisville Monday morning to honor veterans all around Kentuckiana.

The Veterans Day Parade went down a new route this year with the main focus on the front steps of the Kentucky Center at Fifth and Main.

The 113th Army Band Dragoons as well as the 84th training command from Fort Knox took part in the parade.

Veterans we talked to were honored to see so many people thanking them for their service.

“We came down and just seeing the warmth, the crowd, the people; everyone’s shaking your head saying thank you, thank you for your service,” Herb Bradshaw, Vietnam veteran, said.

“My dad served…my uncle recruited my grandfather, served in Vietnam, so it's a long line of history in the military,” Michael Mohr, veteran, said.

Mayor Greg Fischer, Senator Mitch McConnell and John Yarmuth also walked in the parade and attended the reception that followed.
