Thank you, Vets!

My son's high school band marched in the Colorado Springs Veteran's Day Parade Saturday, and it is always a nice event to attend
The band is smaller this year, but they still managed to take second place in the parade's band competition!
 
The morning started with rain, but by the time the parade really got underway, it was sunny.  (The next day we awoke to snow -- so I was overall quite happy we got a break for the parade!)
Frosty, wet parade morning
I hope you have a chance to celebrate the Vets in your life today.
I get a little misty-eyed when I think about how we are losing our WWII Vets, like my father -- the greatest generation -- so don't hold back.
They deserve all our appreciation.
I'll leave you with many photos of our parade:
