We can say our theme will be based our honoring our veteran communities, especially our black veterans.
As you know several of our Black Kings served in may wars and different arm forces. They were even POW (Prisoners of War).
Our own Black American Heritage Flag we honor during Negro Election Day was designed by a black veteran.
We all have a Veteran in our family and at a time when many are overlooked, even homeless, we need to say, we see you!
And Salem United Inc. is saying we saw you in 2023 and we will honor you in 2024.
