Tulsa’s Veteran’s Day Parade

Tulsa had their annual Veterans Day Parade on Monday. It is a big deal in Tulsa.

The Police motorcycles opened things up along with a color guard. I wear a hat almost always when I’m outside but not at this parade. I’m old school, when the flag comes by you take your lid off, unless you are in uniform of course. Khaki slacks and golf shirt is a uniform of sorts but not the right kind.

There were lots of marching bands.

There were some old military vehicles.

And some brand spanking new ones.


There were some very mature soldiers. This gentleman has been in every Veterans Parade I’ve seen.


And the Navy showed up. Navy, Tulsa, just go with it okay?

And some of our future leaders showed up. Big smiles, walking proud. Kudos to whoever got them in the parade.


And some guys with kilts. Liz Cravens, my blog friend from Scotland said “ooooh they’re a bit gaudy!!!” and “Jeez louise I’ve seen more subdued pub carpets!!”


And lots and lots of flags.

Kudos to all the participants and to whoever organizes the parade. They do a great job ever year.

    My father-in-law is a veteran of WWII and a healthy 89. I’m sure he went to the parade in FL. Looks like a great day for marching bands.

    I am old school, too. But I keep my cap on. The rules were changed for veterans and we are allow to salute the flag and the National Anthem. So I stand at attention and salute every time. And I would love to have that WWII Jeep. Best ever made.

    The Scottish group seems a little out of place. Funny comments from your Scottish friends.
    Parades are always fun, and it’s good to remember the Veterans and give them a chance to shine.
