Memorial Day Parade: Appleton, Wisconsin, May 25, 2009

Here are a few photographs from Appleton's wonderful Memorial Day Parade held this morning on College Avenue. If you missed it this year, be there in 2010. For even more photos, see my page of photos from the May 25, 2009 Memorial Day Parade in Appleton. It's a big page, so be patient.

For the photos below, click to enlarge.

Representative Steve Kagen chats with some soldiers from an Airborne unit of the US Army before the parade begins. Mayor Tim Hanna can be seen in the back.

Mayor Tim Hanna was toward the front of the parade. I hope he enjoys all these Appleton parades as much as I do!

I love Memorial Day and Appleton's long-standing Memorial Day Parade. This is a wonderful time to honor those who have given their all to defend this nation. It's also a time to remember those who are now serving and those who serve. I'm a big fan of veterans and am shocked at the slurs against them by certain extremists at the Department of Homeland Security. They are a source of liberty, not a threat to it. God bless our veterans and all those serving in the armed forces and their families.
