Thread: Impressive Showing
01-01-04, 12:07 PM #1
Well our Military had a very impressive showing at the Rose Bowl Parade this AM. The Parade was led by the West Coast Combined Marine Corps Band with a fly over of the F-117, B-2 and New F-22 Raptor. With the Marine Corps Band Playing and those Birds doing a fly over it literly brought tears to my eyes. I have to say it was impressive and this was the first time that all 3 fighters were in formation together. What a way to start off the parade.

The parade was great, as Doc Crow has said.
Best part as far as I am concerned was watchng the entire crowd come to its feet and applaud as the Marine Band marched by playing the Hymn. And watching this happen, like a wave at a stadium, the entire parade route was awesome. And it happens every year.
A young Marine Staff Sergeant - recently returned from tours in Afghanistan and Iraq, rode on the front of the float from his hometown (which I can't remember right now) and got the same standing ovation.
