THE CAISSONS GO ROLLING ALONG
Mother Nature was kind enough to give us a break in the rain so we could enjoy the Veterans Day Parade.
Killeen Texas is home to Fort Hood. Fort Hood is the largest Army base in the Country, and Killeen is a great place have a Veterans Day Parade in the older downtown area.
The 1st Cavalry Division Band leads off the parade!
My son-in-law is 1st Cav.
There are several High Schools in the Killeen ISD, but Killeen HS was the first, and they are the ROOS....well, actually, they are the Kangaroos...but be careful what you say because their pride runs deep.
Every high school has ROTC program, and they are huge....and considered a valuable presence on campus......
....every single one of them
If I had known about this guy representing the Y....
...and this guy, who represents himself, JJ would have been marching too, and he will next year!
Veterans from every war were honored
Our debt to some is enormous
The First Cavalry, First Team covered wagon has a dog....
And they ride in the Rose Parade in Pasadena CA on New Years Day...
And last but not least....
Waving at Grandma J
I loved this small town Veterans Day Parade!!
* FYI, I stood on a corner, and the formation of some of the groups look a bit askew as they made the turn.
