And what a Veterans Day Parade it was! A special thanks to the parade organizers (visit their website) for their kindness and hospitality. The atmosphere could not have been more friendly and welcoming; it was a real joy to cover for the blog.
Also, did you know that the Las Vegas Veterans Day Parade is the 2nd largest in the nation (after New York), and thus, the largest this side of the Mississippi? Pretty darn impressive.
I have organized the photos into two parts: Part I featuring our brothers and sisters in uniform, Part II (you will want to make sure you don't miss these), pictures of our young people, some very small (and adorable), some much larger than I.
Click on the photos that intrigue you to see them full size. They may take a handful of seconds to load, but it is well worth it.

There is Parade Marshall, Brigadier General Joe Heck (Also our Congressman). From my perspective, he really seemed to be enjoying himself.
There is stand from which the ceremonies were administered. The City should be proud for how well the parade was organized.
Congresswoman Dina Titus of Las Vegas, riding in style.
Commissioner Steve Sisolak received an award of gratitude before the parade of his assistance.
I don't know about you, but I could either ride a horse or carry a flag

Apparently I wasn't the only one sensitive to the noise.
Yes, that vehicle is called a "Bone-Crusher".
You can't have a Military Parade without the USO.
My little flag is found a home on my desk.
Is the dog wearing goggles? You betcha.

Who is the Trump person I keep hearing about?
Yes, you are reading that right.

A tip of the hat to the Valley High School March Band that played (and memorized) a great Sousa melody.
The folks here at Clear Counsel just want express our gratitude for the service of our men and women in uniform. Bless you all.
