Here are a few more photos from the Welcome Home Parade last Saturday, January 28th in downtown St. Louis. The parade was organized to welcome Iraq veterans and veterans from other wars also participated in the march along Market Street.

By the time we got to the parade, all the space in front by the fence on the street close to the floats was taken. I captured most images by zooming in with my cheesy camera but being a "shortie" I had to ask the people who stood in front to let me sneak in to take a few photos. Most of the people were nice and agreed to move back temporarily to give me some room. I took the photos, thanked these kind souls and move way back to the sidewalk. It was really cold and windy so we kept walking along the route with the parade instead of standing in one spot.

Everyone had fun when the bikers came around with their fancy decorated bikes. The kids especially enjoyed seeing performance (spinning in circle on the pavement) by the Shriners in their iconic miniture cars.

To all the servicemen and women, our thanks and appreciation for the sacrifice you and your family have made for the freedom and liberty we enjoy. God Bless you - we pray that you soon will be safely home.
