Attended with my parents today. Emotional, exciting, hot, but one the most organized and well planned events I have attended. Thank you to all of the volunteers, Trustees, sponsors, bands, veterans volunteering to help the WWII vets, Desoto County Sherriff's Dept....this list could go on and on. Amazed at the number in attendance, the love and respect shared for courage and honor.
Tremendous that you kept it pretty cool with all the enormous fans, iced water, hand fans on the seats, and thank God for the beautiful weather.

First of all, I am a baby boomer thing, 1952. This is or could be a poster type thing. And I also believe those where the days, 100% better then what is happening now.
Of course as an addendum, I AM 100% for Vets! No matter what conflict the USA governement has gotten people into! VETS are kind of like the lost people, USA calls upon MEN/WOMAN to fight, but then they are forgoten.
