We lined the streets to honor those who serve and have served.
The marching band played
and the cheer leaders thanked.
There were the respectful
and the respected.
and the scoopers.
and the present.

and candy tossing kids with goats.
from back of Jeeps
and homes of those who have given,
and lost their son.
And leaving town for home
a yellow ribbon
for those still waiting...
