Just wanted to thank all of the DAV members that attended the Veterans Day Parade down Woodward Ave. in Detroit. We even had members that marched with other Veteran Organizations. We had four (4) DAV Chapters in all, plus the Military Order of the Purple Heart Chapter 127 had a good turnout and great float. Our very own John Willy Williams (DAV 19) is a trustee for the Parade, nobody works harder than John Williams on this great event. We had great weather, speakers, high school bands, ROTC, T.V. Stations, Veteran organizations and all the people in attendance. Tom Coward lead us carrying the American Flag in his wheelchair . . . John carried the Chapter flag and we had another DAV 19 members Richard, Tom, John, Ken, Nick, Less, John Matthews, Frank, Gerald, Jerry, John Williams
The parade blew me away and I can't wait for next year. Rest assured, spectators WILL line the streets.
Such an incredible event!! Hope you guys are getting some much deserved rest. :)
