Thank you for the great coverage of this annual event. As a Veteran who marched on Monday, it was great to see so many people come out to thank our Vets, especially the 3 scouts who came up and shook my hand as I sat with my Granddaughter watching the rest of the parade after I had marched -- Thanks
