We should support all veterans dead or alive some paid the ultimate price so we could be free. I am a veteran myself I support all military. Come out and support the parade.

Proper flag etiquettte is to remove your hat and cross your heart as the flag goes by in the parade.

So, to those people with kids attending the parade I suggest instead of letting kids go running out in the street for candy, teach them to pay respect to the flag and the veterans who died to protect this country by crossing their heart as it goes by.

Besides, the color guard is the first one in the parade lineup. If your kid can't wait for the candy then I don't see how they were able to make it from you parked car or home to the sidewalk lining the parade route.

Seriously though, a little respect please.
