I will be watching my father, a WWII veteran, participate in the Rockville Memorial Day parade. He is 88 years old and remembers seeing Civil War veterans march in his hometown’s parade growing up. Perhaps the children who see him on Monday will live into the 22nd century and tell their grandkids about it.

Thanks to the City of Rockville for reaching out to our surviving WWII vets, including my dad. They have been lovely about proving instructions, rides, etc., and he is quite excited about it!
