This video isn’t from my home town, but it might as well be. I remember marching in the Memorial Day parade. I rode my bike up to the start and we walked in the parade, behind the WWI and WWII veterans, behind the Gold Star mothers riding in the old convertibles, behind the Boy Scouts, there we were, Cub Scouts in blue uniforms. Participating in a parade to remember those who had fallen. We went the length of Main Street past all the stores, then turned, and went down past the school to the cemetery where there was a speaker and the 21 gun salute.
It’s what you did on Memorial Day in Old America.
