GPC 3GREENVILLE, Ky. (12/10/19) — The Greenville Christmas parade fell on the iconic date of Dec. 7, known as Pearl Harbor Day.

This yearʼs theme of “Remembering our past and Honoring our Veterans” did not disappoint, as all active duty military were invited to participate in the parade, with the Grand Marshall being the oldest living Veteran in Greenville, Ralph Bryant.

Bryant is known around the beautiful town of Greenville as the oldest of those who have served. While working at his father’s farm growing up in Tennessee, it was then that he realized he wanted to do something different. Bryant enlisted in the Army Dec. 18, 1942, and on Sept. 2, 1943, witnessed the signing of the Japanese surrender while aboard the USS Missouri on a ship nearby. The veteran held a long career at TVA and currently serves as a deacon at First Baptist Church in Greenville.

The parade route was changed flowing south through town, starting at South Main and Trowbridge Street, and of course ending with Santa Claus.
