Branson 2009 Veterans Day
The first two photos were taken just before the Veterans Day parade began and the last was during the parade. There were nine of us from I Troop and our spouses. The first photo shows the banner that David Rector, from Ohio, had made. In the group picture, Jim Bowers is front row, left. Next to him is one brother, mother, and wife of Sgt. Cary Siler, Silver Star Recipient, KIA 1967. The youngest brother, is taking the pictures. The last photo shows a sample of the crowd that comes to observe the parade. Probably half the crowd is made up of veterans. We've been participating in the parade at Branson for several years now and proud to show our colors and unit.
