My father was in the military, but he never went to a war. Nevertheless, I teared up when I saw two Air Force veteran officers marching proudly. Fortunately, no one noticed as the kids were too busy scrambling for, trading and eating the little candies some of the vehicles tossed to the crowds.
Thank you to all who serve and the families who support them! We are reminded that our freedom isn't free. On this day, we remember those who have passed on and those who have fallen.
