HAPPY VETERAN’S DAY

Today is Veteran’s Day. Troop 2214 would like to extend gratitude to all those who currently serve our country in the Armed Forces, those who have served in the past and all those who gave the ultimate sacrifice while serving to preserve and protect our great nation!!

On Saturday, our small town held it’s annual Veteran’s Day Parade in downtown on Main Street. For the 3rd year in a row our troop marched in the parade to show our respect and honor all those who serve(d). It is always a treat to see retired men and women still fitting in their military uniforms and proudly waving the colors.

This year we got to march right behind one of the local high school bands, so we had fun music to march to! The photo above is during warm-up, right before the parade started. The photo below is during the parade. The girls loved it!
