Veteran's Day Parade

We live in a small town in southern Nevada.  We love our parades, but they aren't fancy like the big cities.  Our parades are all held on Saturday so more people can participate.  I attended the parade this morning.
We are very proud of this young lady, who won the
VFW Patriot's Pen essay contest, titled: 
"When is the Right Time to Honor Our Military Heroes?"
My husband had the honor of driving the car for her in the parade.  Yes, that's his car.

If you would like to read her essay, it is at this link:
