Honor Our Vets

Lonnie and I went downtown yesterday for the Veterans’ Day Parade. There is something very moving about seeing the open display of patriotism in our divided world- and especially the veterans of World War II and more recent conflicts proudly wearing their uniforms to the cheers of the crowds.

I always love the vintage uniforms- and was taken with the soldier on the right and his resemblance to George Washington – at least in my mind.

    I agree with your sentiments! For a moment, though, I was distracted by the sunshine! It snowed here yesterday…

      Lynne! Yes, it is sunny here! But our temps have gone down to 25 at night now- Brrr! I was COLD watching the parade and got a stiff neck from the wind blowing on it while watching the parade. Enjoy that snow- I don’t think we’ll have any for awhile.
