McHenry Fiesta Days parade

Published: Sunday, July 27, 2014 5:30 a.m. CDT

As a member of the PLAV Color Guard, I want to compliment all of the people who lined the streets for our Fiesta Days Parade. Everyone not only stood up to show their respect for our flag, but applauded our veterans for their service to our country.

We participate in a few other parades and always have to remind people along the way to respect our flag, so it was wonderful for us to see that our own city knows what our flag means to everyone. Thanks to everyone for their patriotism!

An aside to the parade organizers: You did a wonderful job of organization.

My only comment is when the combined color guards pass by the review stands, you mention all of the organizations represented, not just one or two.

Thanks again to everyone, it is a pleasure to participate in our McHenry parade.
