Honoring Our Heroes



Yesterday after my museum shift, I just walked down to 19th Street and waited for the Veterans' Day Parade to begin. Our parade is known as the oldest and largest Veterans' Day Parade . A lot of great flag waving and cheering for our heroes past and present. Today a few of our heroes past. There will be more photos to come.

For those of you that enjoyed my friend Michael Dulin's great music here on BADP, I want to invite you to his new website here. Check the NEWS section each week. Mike will be offering an original song each and every week .....FREE!

I liked your tribute to veterans. I especially liked the first picture.

I'll chime in with the others. That first picture has multiple generations and multiple wars represented. What an important image.

V, do you remember when we did not have the day off from school, but we might be allowed to leave early to attend the Veteran's Day Parade? My dad and older brother were always in it. It got to be such a big event involving school bands from all over the state...that somewhere along the way....the sate made it a full holiday. I wish Georgia would do the same.....{{{{sigh}}}}.
Top of my list when I retire: I will lay a wreath on my father' grave EVERY Veteran's Day.
