A day of rememberance

This morning we watched the Memorial Day parade on Broadway which runs down the middle of town in Saratoga Springs. Bagpipes were playing (which I love), and several veterans, current military-in-training, and a marching band went by, in addition to some very impressive fire trucks. A group I'd not seen before also marched past, tails in the air: the United States War Dogs Association, pictured below.
With the long weekend, pools opening, and sales, it's easy to forget the real reason behind this day: remembering the men and women who've served this country in the Armed Forces—I have family members who fall into this category. It was great to see such a positive turnout for the town's acknowledgment of this day.
