It was starting to drizzle today, the wind was picking up and little bits of the neighborhood’s recyclables happened to be breezing by – but the Veterans came out in all their colors despite it. They came marching, riding and saluting the United States of America that they fought for, so we honored them in the best way we could by standing in the rain alongside them.
Here are some of the moments from this afternoon’s Old Town Florissant’s Veteran’s Day Parade.
