Memorial Day parade changes target politicians

Next year’s Memorial Day parade may have a less political feel, as organizers are instituting some changes, including a ban on day-of marchers. “Most of the comments we hear every year are positive, but there’s negative ones about politicians ... and not enough recognition of the veterans,” said Cheryl Vandiver, who has helped direct the event since its start 12 years ago. Basically, all participants, except bands, will have to include or honor a veteran in some way.
