Nick was honored to march in the 35th Annual Veteran's Day Parade, sponsored by the Ross Hollywood Chapel, in Portland's Hollywood neighborhood.

 

Following the parade, he joined Mayor Adams and Chiefs Klum and Sizer, of the Fire and Police Bureaus, in speaking. He told the story of his grandfather, Hamilton Fish, who acted as Regimental Commander of the 369th, the first African-American Regiment during World War I, and went on to author the resolution honoring an unknown soldier in Arlington Cemetery.
