I understand this is the largest Veterans Day Parade and that his year there were more than 20,000 participants in the parade with over 3,000 Active Duty. Amazing!

The Parade Theme this year was “Freedom Isn’t Free”and  the air was filled with “Thank you for your service” applause for all of our Vets (and their families ) as they passed-by the Reviewing Stand.

There seemed to be a bit of uncertainty when the Chinese walked by…American Vets…?Chinese Vets…? The Reviewing Stand seemed unsure who they were thanking…

Near the end of Part 1, our Vets from the Iraq/Afganistan campaigns, marched-by . There were so many who marched by!  Young, enthusiastic and proud to be an American.

There were unfortunately, Anti-America Seditionists (and  “Death Car”) marching in the parade. They should have marched in their own parade. See Post here
