Land of the free because of the brave
Attended the Veteran’s Day parade at 11:00 this morning here in Cookeville
Grandson Knox was there to thank the veterans
ROTC [high school I think] honor guard
I’m big time patriotic, and watching these veterans in uniform, especially the ones from WWII, marching in the parade was very moving ~ can’t help getting a bit emotional
On this day remembering those who gave their lives in service to their country
Thank you to those who are currently serving
My grandson Elijah marched in the parade with the Capshaw Cougar Jump Rope Team
My alma mater [I enjoyed being in the Cavalier marching band way back in the day] Love their patriotic colors
Elijah’s jump team pausing to perform a brief program to show off their skills
Love my town and how it knows the importance of honoring and remembering our veterans
Also attending the parade: son in law Kerry, daughter Kelly, daughter Holly, and grandson Knox
After the parade we went back to Kelly’s house which is right between the town square and Elijah’s school so we waved at his jump rope team as they walked [paraded] back to school. I love it when my grandkids run to me and give me a big hug which is what Elijah was doing here.
Happy Veteran’s Day! Thank you for your dedicated service to the cause of liberty.
