ST. LOUIS – Veterans attending the VFW Conference in St. Louis will be honored on Tuesday with a parade, and you're invited to take part.

The parade begins at 5 p.m. at America's Center and ends at Soldiers' Memorial.

One of the parade organizers is Rocky Sickmann, the Missouri Marine held hostage in Iran for 444 days. He was released in January 1981. He's now the director of military sales for Anheuser-Busch.

Sickmann and A-B hope to give the thousands of veterans visiting St. Louis the same type of welcome he received in 1981.
